    How Berkshire’s Insurance Can Garner Growth in 1Q18

    The insurance sector (IYF) has seen underwriting losses in 2H17 mainly due to higher claims resulting from hurricanes and other calamities. This has led to higher insurance revenues for many companies, including Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). Underwriting losses will largely depend upon claims arising in the upcoming quarters.

    What to Expect from Berkshire Hathaway’s 1Q18 Earnings

    In 1Q18, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) is expected to post EPS (earnings per share) of $3,115, a rise of 44% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis aided by lower taxes, targeted efficiencies in BNSF, and an expected decline in claims from its insurance business. Berkshire is expected to see a 9.9% fall in its top line to $58.7 billion in 1Q18 due to subdued growth in underwriting fees and the services sector. In 4Q17, Berkshire posted EPS of $2,029, which were affected by underwriting losses and the subdued performance of its energy subsidiary.

    Trade Wars and Tax Cuts Affect Wells Fargo in 2018

    The Trump administration appears to have initiated trade wars with China, Canada, and other countries in order to counter rising imports and encourage domestic manufacturing. The administration’s efforts to lower taxes, meaning fewer regulations for mid- and small-size financial companies, are directed toward reducing the fiscal deficit by encouraging domestic manufacturing and exports. The bank could benefit by improving its credit offtake amid demand from the manufacturing sector for capacity augmentation.

    Banks (IYF) enjoyed a strong run in 2016 and 2017 helped by higher rates driving NIMs (net interest margins), expansion of asset management activity, higher inflows, strategic transaction advisory, and trading activity. EPS growth of 8% in 1Q18 can be helped by lower operating losses, higher net interest margins, and an expected pickup in credit offtake.

    Rate Hikes Can Decelerate amid Weaker Broad Markets

    The era of rate hikes since December 2015 has proven to be beneficial for commercial banks (IYF). Net interest margins have risen due to a difference between the cost of funds raised and money that was loaned. As rates steepen—with the federal funds rate at 1.5% and the Federal Reserve hinting at another three or four rate hikes in 2018—credit offtake can slow amid lower tax rates.
