    National Bank remains profitable for sixth successive quarter in Q1‏

    ANA-MPA -- National Bank Group on Wednesday said it remained on a profitable course for the sixth successive quarter, with net profits totaling 181 million euros in the January-March period, up from 27 million euros in the corresponding period in 2013.

    The bank attributed this achievement to a continuing increase of net interest revenues in Greece, actions to cut back on spending and a slowdown in creation of new bad debt.

    Finansbank contributed to National Bank’s profits, with earnings of 63 million euros in the first three months of the year despite adverse conditions prevailing in the Turkish market, while subsidiaries in Southeastern Europe contributed with profits of 14 million euros.

    National Bank said new bad loans fell by 38 pct to 380 million euros in the first quarter, compared with the same period last year, while provisions fell by 15 pct to 362 million euros. The bank said the level of covering bad debt provisions was 56 pct, the highest in the market, while the non-performing loans rate rose to 23 pct at the end of March from 22.5 pct at the end of December 2013.

    Deposits grew at an annual rate of 15 pct to 45.9 billion euros, for an increase of 5.0 pct in the first quarter. Time deposits grew 17 pct, option deposits rose 11 pct and savings deposits rose 2.0 pct.

    The bank’s loan portfolio totaled 46 billion euros, up 4.0 pct on an annual basis, reflecting a 9.0 pct increase in loans to large enterprises. The loan/deposit rate fell to 84 pct in March from 96 pct a year earlier. Borrowing from the Eurosystem fell by 6.2 billion euros in the first quarter of 2014.

    Alexandros Tourkolias, chief executive of the bank, commenting on the results, said that a successful share capital increase plan in May was a landmark in the bank’s efforts to be included among the most robust financial institutions in Europe.

    I like the volume also!

  • franciscopardo378 by franciscopardo378 Feb 14, 2014 11:29 AM Flag

    Coming soon! When it´s done I think it should fly higher.

    It has already bottomed up. Consolidating at the 4$ level and ready to continue the overcoming of a huge misprice after the Chapter 11 episode.

    I´m waiting for the 5.50-6$ level to arrive sooner rather than later.


    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I think in the next days it will find a new bottom not far from where the price is right now. Then it will start rising again to the 4.20-4.60 level the least. Just wait for the volume to come back.

    Sentiment: Buy

    It seems like somebody realised that there´s not anymore a question of seeing the volume and the graphs, but the fundamentals of the company. Debt´s under control, digital sector is growing according to the plans and investor sentiment in the sector is more than bullish, not a coincidence that Warren Buffet has put his eye under this company, neither that he wants to keep secret his moves about it.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Trend confirmed. skyrocketing top crest accumulation crescendo upward increasing maximize growth gain not enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe it.

  • franciscopardo378 by franciscopardo378 Nov 6, 2013 3:48 PM Flag

    After the break of 3.10 I can´t even figure out what the top might be. I see the 5-5.50 range coming sooner rather than later.

    I´m thinking how much more does LEE need to raise in price for W. Buffet to acquire the whole company.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • franciscopardo378 franciscopardo378 Oct 17, 2013 4:08 PM Flag

    Lee has Warren Buffet on board for good, the most successful investor of all time!

    That alone just makes Lee´s debt safer, and interest payments are going already down.

    Newspaper are coming back stronger, just look at Bezos also taking over WPO.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    As the price stabilizes around 3$, once the volume grows again the upward trend will be continued, as it´s not easy to see any negative news affecting the company that have not already been discounted, even with excess.

    If it goes down, it will recover quickly, as we´ve seen in the past weeks, and the levels to go down are harder each day that continues in the 2.90-3$ range.

    Any (constructive/argumentative) feedback is welcome.

  • franciscopardo378 by franciscopardo378 Oct 8, 2013 5:49 PM Flag

    We see a solid upward trend in the stock, with a solid foundation in the financials of the company. Long-term winner.
