    Pennsylvania accuses financial firms of bond price-fixing

    Pennsylvania's treasury department is accusing about a dozen large financial firms of working together to illegally inflate the price of bonds issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over seven years. A federal court filing by Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella late Thursday cites what his office says is evidence from a "cooperating co-conspirator" in a U.S. Department of Justice investigation into price-fixing in the secondary market for bonds issued by government-controlled companies.

    Why U.S.-China Trade Tensions Pulled Bank of America Stock Lower

    Financial institutions are getting caught in the downdraft created by the ongoing U.S.-China trade tensions. If trading activity slows, banks have fewer business deals to work on, hurting revenues. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), which fell 4% last week, is set to erase the post-earnings rally that continued after its earnings report posted in April. At a recent price of $28.40, should investors consider BAC stock?Source: Shutterstock Bank of America reported first-quarter earnings of 70 cents, up 13% from last year but adding to its 27% CAGR since Q1 2015. Its operating leverage fell to 4%, while its share count dropped 7% to 9.8 billion.Expect management to continue its shareholder-friendly moves over the long-term. If investors view trade tensions as noise, then the stock's recent dip of around 5.4% in the last month created another entry point for investors.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Operating LeverageBank of America, like other banks, is investing heavily on its own business to gain operating leverage. It will increase spending in technology/digitization by 10% this year. Its physical delivery network expanded as it added 31 financial centers in new and existing markets in the last 12 months. These investments are already having a positive impact on the business. It now has 37 million active digital banking users, compared to 32 million in Q1 2016. Total payments topped $705 billion, with non-digital growing 3% year-over-year and digital up 8%. With each digital transaction displacing the traditional ones, Bank of America is saving on operating costs. * 10 Names That Are Screaming Stocks to Buy The growth in mobile channel usage and digital deposit transactions all point to the bank becoming an online bank giant. And while the growth in loans and leases may slow due to macro issues, Bank of America is building a leaner operation to grow profits. First-Quarter By the NumbersBank of America's client balances grew 4% while the average deposit size increased 5%. GWIM now has assets under management of $1.1 trillion. The company bought back $6.3 billion in shares and paid out $1.5 billion in dividends. The stock's dividend yields 2.12%. This is below Citigroup's (NYSE:C) 2.77% and Wells Fargo & Company's (NYSE:WFC) 3.94%. Overall, it returned 112% of net income to common shareholders.BAC stock is more attractive than Wells Fargo because the latter still has the account fraud scandal controversy to deal with. Rate Hikes on PauseThe Fed's pause on rate hikes is another negative headwind that investors should consider despite the strong quarterly report from Bank of America. Without rates rising, the growth in income from interest rate spreads will slow. Still, Bank of America's net interest income grew 5% year-over-year by $0.6 billion. It benefited from past rate hikes and loan and deposit growth. This was partially offset by loan spread compression.Steady Non-performing loans, consumer and commercial net charge-offs in the first quarter could worsen if the U.S. economy worsens. For now, trade war tensions are unlikely to hurt the economy, but investors consider an escalation in tariff levels as a potential risk for BAC stock. ValuationOnly nine analysts cover Bank of America stock and have an average price target of $35.33 (according to Tipranks). Conversely, investors could use a price-to-earnings multiple valuation model to determine the fair value of BAC stock. This involves comparing its value with Citi, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan (NYSE:JPM) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS). With this model, the fair value of ~$30, giving an upside of 6%.Investors could instead choose WFC stock, whose P/E of 10X is similar to that of BAC stock. Citi's P/E is 9.5 times and its dividend yield is higher. Yet investors chose to sell the stock, too, by 4.2% in the week and 7.5% lower in the month. That is more than the drop in BAC stock. Your TakeawayTrade tensions will dominate the headlines and move BAC stock in either direction. But Bank of America demonstrated its transformation to digital banking is paying off regardless of the trade war stories.As of this writing, Chris Lau did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

  • Honesty Is A Good Start But Not Enough To Boost General Electric Stock

    Honesty Is A Good Start But Not Enough To Boost General Electric Stock

    Give credit where credit is due. The new leaders of General Electric (NYSE:GE), most notably CEO Larry Culp, have pledged to be more transparent with investors. That honesty already has boosted GE stock, which has gained some 40% so far this year.Source: Shutterstock As bearish as I've been on GE, the optimism makes some sense. Culp worked wonders at Danaher (NYSE:DHR). GE has some valuable assets. Its problem areas -- notably Power and GE Capital -- have weighed on the stock in part because the bad news never seemed to end. As I wrote a little more than two years ago, GE clearly lost investors' trust. In the interim, Culp, CFO Jamie Miller, and other executives have made regaining that trust a priority.The problem -- as General Electric stock climbed above $10 yesterday before falling back -- is that GE is being honest about real problems with the business at the moment. Meanwhile, GE stock might seem "cheap" given its long fall from $30+, but it still has a market capitalization of $86 billion -- and a larger amount of debt and pension expense.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsCulp and Miller have time to fix General Electric and they well might succeed. But there's a long way to go and still some success priced in at $10. GE Gets HonestIt's an interesting argument as to whether management's increased transparency has helped GE stock. Certainly, there have been short-term relief rallies, starting with the 7% pop that came when Culp was named CEO at the beginning of October. In late January, GE missed estimates in fourth quarter earnings -- and the stock still soared after Culp projected improvement in the struggling Power business, albeit not until 2020. Meanwhile, 2019 guidance in March similarly disappointed, and yet GE stock rose again, with Culp calling 2019 a "reset year." * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market When Culp talks, investors cheer. And he literally has put his money where his mouth is, buying more than $2 million in GE stock last year. He's also laid out a strategy for GE to be slimmer, more nimble and more financially solid. The dividend was cut again, saving cash flow to pay down debt, and assets are up for sale to drive further deleveraging. Importantly, GE has been crystal-clear in detailing those strategies.The latest example of that came last Wednesday. JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) analyst Stephen Tusa long has been bearish -- and right -- on General Electric stock. In a note released Wednesday morning, Tusa said the company still was managing the headlines in its Power business, seemingly highlighting a big order number cited by Reuters on Tuesday, a report which Tusa said overstated the early success of the turnaround in Power.It hardly seems a coincidence that hours later, CFO Miller told a conference that the company still expected "significantly negative" free cash flow from Power this year, and that Q1 orders didn't signify a change in trend. Indeed, it looks like GE management wants not even the appearance of trying to obscure the real problems facing Power -- and the business as a whole. Will It Help GE Stock?It's a worthwhile strategy. But it's also worth noting that for all the optimism so far, it hasn't actually worked. General Electric stock is down almost 9% from where it traded the day before Culp's hiring was announced. The YTD rally seems due at least in part to the recovering broad market -- and many of the short-term bumps driven by management commentary have soon fizzled.Meanwhile, GE is being honest but it's important to listen to what management actually is saying. Miller said Wednesday that margins in Power won't recover for at least three years. Culp said in March that free cash flow outside GE Capital would be negative this year.The sale of GE Biopharma to Danaher for $21.4 billion will help the balance sheet. But it also sends a key earning asset out the door, and -- again, according to management -- limits the likelihood of a spin-off of GE Healthcare. Even with GE Capital, which has driven several multi-billion dollar charges in recent years, Culp hasn't made any promises that all the problems are solved. General Electric Stock Has a Long Road AheadThe transparency coming from GE is welcome … and a long time coming. Shareholders and potential investors deserve to know what they're getting into. Perhaps more importantly, a turnaround -- for GE or for any other company -- can't happen until or unless management truly understands what needs to be fixed. * 7 Stocks to Buy that Lost 10% Last Week But the problems here are real. GE stock hasn't collapsed because of negative coverage from Tusa, or pressure from short sellers, or just because former CEOs Jeff Immelt and John Flannery weren't paying attention. The power industry on the whole is shrinking. GE Capital took risks similar to those that hurt big banks like Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) last decade; it simply took this long for some of the costs to come to light.So while it's worth appreciating the newfound honesty at GE, it's also worth listening to that honesty. Cash flow is negative. Power is years away from improving while the market for gas-powered turbines may continue to shrink. (Admittedly, some observers see growth.) GE Capital may still have some issues to iron out.Aviation, Renewable Energy, and Healthcare have value but I argued a year ago that even with that strength, the fair value of GE stock looked to be about $9-$11 per share. Honesty is helpful, but it doesn't change that core problem.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
