    Regions Financial profit falls a bit shy of expectation, revenue meets

    Regions Financial Corp. reported Friday a fourth-quarter profit that fell a bit short of expectations, while revenue was in line with forecasts. The stock was little changed in light premarket trading. Net income was $366 million, or 38 cents a share, compared with $390 million, or 37 cents a share, in the year-ago period. The FactSet consensus was 39 cents. The regional bank said non-recurring items, such as losses on the early extinguishment of debt and charges for branch consolidation, reduced earnings per share by 2 cents. Total revenue rose 3% to $1.48 billion, matching the FactSet consensus, while net interest income slipped 4.1% to $931 million, but topped expectations of $926.5 million. Total loans grew 0.6% to $82.39 billion, while consumer lending fell 3.4% to $30.42 billion. The stock has gained 7.1% over the past three months, while the SPDR S&P Bank ETF has advanced 8.0% and the S&P 500 has tacked on 10.6%.

    Puerto Rico's Popular boosts dividend by 33%, plans to buy back up to $500 million worth of stock

    Shares of Popular Inc. rose 1.4% in morning trading Thursday, after the Puerto Rico-based bank said it was raising its dividend by 33% and was planning to buy back up to $500 million worth of its common stock. The dividend increase raises the quarterly payout to 40 cents a share from 30 cents. Based on current stock prices, the new annual dividend rate implies a dividend yield of 2.70%, compared with the implied yield for the SPDR S&P Bank ETF of 2.36% and for the S&P 500 of 1.83%. The buyback program could represent up to 8.44 million shares, or about 8.7% of the shares outstanding, based on recent outstanding share counts. The stock has rallied 11.1% over the past three months, while the bank ETF has advanced 13.1% and the S&P 500 has gained 11.9%.

    Bank ETFs That Could Benefit from Increased M&A Activity

    With mergers and acquisition activity picking up, regional banks and financial sector ETFs that track smaller firms could benefit from the increased consolidation. There were 35 deals in the regional banking space last year, the highest number since 1999, and with the 2020 presidential election looming, buyers may be in a hurry to lock in deals in the first half of the year before a potentially new president comes to office, MarketWatch reports. “Bankers might have a short window to get those deals done,” S&P Global Market Intelligence said in a note.
