European stocks rallied on Thursday as investors snapped up battered shares of eurozone banks after the U.S. Federal Reserve toned down expectations of further interest rate cuts. Shares of Italian and Spanish banks including Bankia SA , UBI Banca and Banco Sabadell were among the top gainers on the STOXX 600 after the Fed cut rates as expected on Wednesday, but signalled there would be a higher bar to further cut in borrowing costs. European banks, along with sectors such as miners and automakers, have gained in the recent weeks as investors rotated into cyclical sectors due to signs of easing U.S.-China trade tensions and assurances of support from major central banks.
A rally in banking shares and other recently battered sectors such as oil and gas and automakers kept the mood buoyant in European stock markets on Tuesday, as investors speculated over policy measures by the European Central Bank later this week. The pan-European STOXX 600 index, after opening in the red, closed 0.1% higher as the banking index climbed for a fifth session, its best five-day rally since April 2017. Oil and gas, basic resources and automakers - among the worst-hit sectors this year on worries over the U.S.-China trade war, Brexit and a global slowdown - gained between 0.2% and 2%.

Spain's Bankia, majority owned by the state, posted a drop in first-quarter net profit on Monday due to lower trading income as attention turned to privatisation prospects after an election made a left-wing coalition likely. The Socialists, who won the most votes in Sunday's election but will need at least one partner to govern, are expected to turn to far left-wing party Podemos, which has floated the idea that Bankia could become a permanent national bank. Podemos has also lobbied for Bankia to offer services based on social, as well as market, considerations and had advocated a supplementary tax on banks' earnings.

Retail bank TSB needs to turnaround its business and cut costs before becoming a candidate for a sale or to take part in any consolidation in Britain, the chairman of parent Banco Sabadell said on Wednesday. Sabadell bought TSB for £1.7 billion in 2015 to expand into Britain and challenge incumbent retail banks. TSB has also been hit by an IT glitch forcing the bank to hire 2,100 staff to help fix the problems which left customers locked out of their online accounts for weeks.
State-owned Spanish lender Bankia will meet its net profit target of 1.3 billion euros ($1.48 billion) in 2020 despite low interest rates, its chairman said on Thursday. Analysts have been questioning whether Bankia would be able to meet the 2020 target after the European Central Bank delayed any prospects of higher interest rates next year. "We will stick to our net profit target and to our plan to pay back 2.5 billion euros to our shareholders," Jose Ignacio Goirigolzarri told journalists in Valencia, a day before the bank's annual shareholder meeting.
MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - European shares fell from five-month highs on Thursday after the European Central Bank changed its interest rate guidance and announced a new round of cheap bank loans sooner than expected, though with tougher terms than previous rounds. Euro zone banks sank 3.3 percent, their worst day since Dec. 6, as the ECB's announcement of a new Targeted Long-Term Refinancing Operation (TLTRO) failed to soothe investors' concerns about the pushing out of rate hikes. "Bank stocks are the more volatile expression of market fears about the growth outlook, and pushing rate hikes into next year makes it tough to see bank earnings growing," Kilmurray, who has an overweight position in euro zone banks, added.

Spain's Bankia posted an almost 40 percent rise in full-year net profit in 2018, with a pick up in trading offsetting a fourth-quarter loss from the sale of toxic assets as the lender intensified efforts to clean up its balance sheet. Net profit reached 703 million euros ($802.3 million) in 2018, up from 505 million euros a year earlier, boosted by higher commissions and trading income despite ongoing pressure on lending. The Spanish government holds a 64 percent stake in Bankia, the country's fourth largest bank by assets, following a 22.4 billion euro rescue in 2012 during the country's financial crisis.
Rodrigo Rato blamed the Bank of Spain for mishandling the creation of Bankia on Tuesday at a trial in which the former International Monetary Fund chief and three other ex- board members of the Spanish lender are accused of fraud. Rato, who denies any wrongdoing, was Bankia's chairman at the time of a merger of seven unlisted regional banks to form Bankia in 2010 and its ill-fated 2011 initial public offering. Less than a year after the 3.1-billion-euro ($3.6 billion) IPO, Bankia reported a 3 billion euro loss, prompting a 22.5 billion euro state bailout and its nationalisation.
Spain's state-held lender Bankia said on Monday it had sold a portfolio of toxic assets with a gross value of 3.1 billion euros ($3.5 billion) to two subsidiaries of U.S. private equity firm Lone Star, confirming a Reuters report on Friday. The portfolio includes foreclosed assets with a gross book value of 1.65 billion euros and non-performing loans worth 1.42 billion euros, the bank said.
