Results on Wednesday showed they are losing those benefits at a time when the economy is weakening, trade tensions are escalating and the Bank of Japan’s extraordinary monetary easing looks set to stay. “The business environment is very uncertain and tougher than last year,” Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc. President Jun Ohta said at a news briefing in Tokyo, dismissing the notion that his bank’s profit target is conservative. Sumitomo Mitsui, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. and Mizuho Financial Group Inc. all posted net income projections that missed analysts’ estimates, as rising bad-loan costs and diminishing gains from sales of stock holdings put a dampener on earnings prospects in the year ending March 2020.
Japan's three largest banks all reported lower annual profits on Wednesday, highlighting the challenges faced by the banking industry as the world's third-largest economy looks to be headed for another downturn. The size of the declines varied - Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group had a 1% drop while rival Mizuho reported an 83% dive - all three show the difficulty banks have in navigating Japan's ultra-loose monetary policy. Japanese banks have had to cope for years with an ageing and shrinking population and massive central bank stimulus that has left them with razor-thin profit margins.

Brokerage firm Mizuho began research coverage of (MSFT) and (CRM) on Thursday with strong recommendations for both stocks because of what they have to offer in the cloud.

Mizuho Financial Group Inc. last week reported about 150 billion yen ($1.35 billion) of valuation losses on its foreign-bonds portfolio, while Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc.’s foray into U.S. high-yield debt underwriting went awry. Less than two months ago, Nomura Holdings Inc. took an impairment charge of almost $750 million for its overseas investment-banking business. Mizuho and its rivals have a combined stockpile of 142 trillion yen in international bonds, so getting out of overseas markets is hardly realistic. More mishaps may be unavoidable, unless Japanese banks become rapidly more sophisticated about overseas markets.

Japan's Nikkei slid to a one-week low on Thursday morning with chip-related stocks leading the decline in step with U.S. counterparts, while Mizuho Financial Group underperformed after it sharply cut its annual profit outlook. "Profit-taking makes sense now as ongoing U.S.-China trade talks, major concerns for the market, have provided no signs of exit plan while the market had risen smoothly for the past two months," said Hikaru Sato, a senior technical analyst at Daiwa Securities. Chip equipment makers Advantest Corp dropped 2.7 percent, Tokyo Electron plunged 3.6 percent and silicon products maker Sumco Corp dived 7.3 percent on further doubts the industry's downturn is near a bottom.
Japan's Mizuho Financial Group slashed its full-year profit outlook by 86 percent, citing one-time restructuring costs of 680 billion yen (4.63 billion pounds) at its bank and brokerage units and an overhaul of its securities portfolio. Japan's second-largest bank by assets said it expects 80 billion yen in net income for the business year ending March 31, instead of 570 billion yen it had predicted earlier. Mizuho said it would book about 500 billion yen of impairment losses on fixed assets, including costs from closing retail branches at home and software-related expenses.
