    Bank of America Stock Is Worth Grabbing When It’s Cheap

    Bulge bracket banks kicked off second-quarter earnings, and despite a low interest rate environment, big banks delivered record numbers. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) did particularly well, delivering its best quarter in the company's history.Source: Shutterstock The combination of strong consumer spending activity and BAC management's continued commitment to share repurchases has proved potent. It's not over yet either. The company, in no uncertain terms, has committed to an additional $37 billion of dividends and share repurchases.BAC has built further trust with their clients, and the financial results speak for themselves. Consumer banking and wealth management continue to show a lot of strength, buoyed by improvements on the digital platform. Overall performance from most business units -- weakness in sales and trading was not unexpected -- was very positive.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe momentum from this quarter should continue through to the next. Happy Customers Are Good for BusinessNot only did average deposits grow 3% (or by $19 billion), consumer investment assets grew a very solid 15% to $220 billion assets under management. Remember that fees generated from managing these investment assets are a lucrative business. To the extent that these client flows continue, which admittedly has been helped along by strong equity market performance, double-digit growth could very well persist next quarter.It's also an important revenue stream as interest income will hit some uncertainty in the remainder of the fiscal year. Net interest income rose 3% in the quarter, but if the expectation of interest rates getting lowered comes to fruition, it would pose a challenge of sustaining even low single-digit growth rates.BAC regained its status as the leader by market share in small business lending. They are building up deeper and deeper ties to consumers and business owners. This symbiotic relationship between personal and commercial clients. BAC Is Strong on the Digital FrontAll the banks have been actively bolstering their digital platforms, and BAC has seen excellent feedback and traction. Active mobile banking users were up 10% to 27.8 million. * 10 Best Cryptocurrencies to Keep on Your Radar Zelle users haven't quite grown at quite the desired clip, sitting at 8 million active users, but it is not just the number of active users that matters. Rather, the ability of BAC to upsell and generate revenue via the digital platform is more important. It is noteworthy then that 69 million sent and received payments via Zelle. That translates to $18 billion and a 79% increase year-over-year. So, the substantial growth in volume somewhat alleviates the concern of slower growth in total users.Another point worth noting is that one-third of total consumer mortgage applications came from digital. Increasingly, BAC's investment in their platform is paying dividends beyond just payments transfers. BAC Stock Is Undeniably CheapIn numerical terms, BAC saw consumer spending increase 5% year-over-year and share repurchases amount to 7% of the total float in the past twelve months.This dynamic has driven a double-digit increase in book value per share, a more appropriate valuation metric for financial holding companies. Based on BAC's calculation of $26.41 per share, BAC stock currently trades at just 1.1x. Other competitors like JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) are not expensive either, but BAC is the cheapest from this angle.The robust earnings combined with this existing relative undervaluation should see that this imbalance does not persist for long.As of this writing, Luce Emerson did not own any of the aforementioned securities.

  • Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs Play the Long Game

    Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs Play the Long Game

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley are the two Wall Street banks most connected to high-stakes trading. Historically, that made them seem glamorous relative to the other big U.S. institutions, which focused on the more steady business of retail banking.The tide has turned. Persistently low volatility has made it clear that banks can’t count on traders to drive profits. Goldman’s equities revenue beat expectations earlier this week, in a small sign of hope, but Morgan Stanley’s results on Thursday were more far more indicative of the trend. Its $2.13 billion from equities was the highest among banks but was down 14% from a year ago and fell short of even the lowered estimates of $2.27 billion. In fixed income, currencies and commodities, revenue dropped 18% rather than the expected 7% decline.This puts Goldman and Morgan Stanley in a tough spot. They’re not well positioned to immediately compete with Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. in catering to the banking needs of Main Street. At the same time, the bank executives have to feel pressure to limit the quarter-to-quarter fluctuations that are at the mercy of the whims of the global markets.Reading between the lines, their answer to this quandary appears to be more emphasis on wealth management.Now, this isn’t exactly a revelation, nor an abrupt shift. Morgan Stanley has been moving into wealth management strategically for a while, and Goldman’s division already oversees more than $1 trillion in assets. Still, the banks’ latest commentary and moves in the past quarter make clear that they see this business, which produces a steady stream of fee-based income, as a way to leverage their reputation as titans of Wall Street.In Morgan Stanley’s earnings call on Thursday, Chief Executive Officer James Gorman specifically praised Dan Simkowitz for his work on building up the firm’s asset-management unit. And by all accounts it was well deserved, with the division’s revenue at the highest in five years. On the wealth-management side, Morgan Stanley posted $4.41 billion of revenue, which was 2% higher than last year and blew away analysts’ estimates for a 9% decline.Moreover, Morgan Stanley’s wealth-management division posted an impressive 28% profit margin. So impressive, in fact, that it drew more than one question from analysts about whether the bank can sustain that sort of momentum, including from Mike Mayo of Wells Fargo. Gorman insisted “it’s not like we are sitting back and saying we are really milking this.” Rather, “we’re playing for the long run.”At Goldman, Chief Executive Officer David Solomon on Tuesday highlighted its $750 million purchase of wealth manager United Capital, which was announced in May and represented one of Goldman’s biggest acquisitions in recent memory. Bloomberg News’s Sridhar Natarajan noted at the time that Solomon has made building out fee-based businesses a high priority so that shareholders can more easily estimate the bank’s growth and earnings.None of this is to say that Morgan Stanley and Goldman will abandon their positions as premier trading firms. But it’s notable to parse what Morgan Stanley Chief Financial Officer Jon Pruzan told Bloomberg News’s Sonali Basak in an interview. “We’re No. 1 in the world” in equities trading, he said, adding that “we would expect to maintain our market share in this type of environment.” He reiterated those comments during the analyst call.It’s certainly possible that volatility will resume, given that stock markets are hovering near all-time highs and global central banks are on the verge of further easing monetary policy. But framing expectations in terms of maintaining market share would seem to indicate that Pruzan expects further challenges for trading in the coming months and years. Ted Pick, who oversees all of Morgan Stanley’s traders and investment bankers, made some interesting comments in May about the equities business. He said he had led the division with “high levels of paranoia” because it felt like a couple of competitors were coming after the bank, either on price or looser risk requirements or something else. He said “that’s not a game we’re going to play.”Rather, as these second-quarter earnings make clear, Morgan Stanley is playing the long game. So is Goldman. When it comes to dealing with the fickle nature of financial markets, sometimes the most sound strategy is to play the hand you’re dealt.To contact the author of this story: Brian Chappatta at bchappatta1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Daniel Niemi at dniemi1@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brian Chappatta is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering debt markets.

    Facebook Crypto Plan Draws Fresh Fury From House Democrats

    (Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc. took a beating for a second straight day over its controversial cryptocurrency plans as Democratic lawmakers argued the proposal posed vast privacy and national security risks.At a Wednesday hearing before the House Financial Services Committee, Chairwoman Maxine Waters compared Facebook to Wells Fargo & Co. and Equifax Inc., two scandal ridden companies that have come under scrutiny for harming consumers. If Facebook issues its Libra token, she added, the company will “wield immense power that could disrupt” governments and central banks.California’s Waters and other committee Democrats have crafted legislation to bar the company from proceeding with the coin until it can be properly vetted. In his testimony, Facebook executive David Marcus reiterated that the company won’t go ahead ahead with the cryptocurrency until regulators and governments across the world are satisfied. Democrats, however, were unmoved.Still, Marcus found more friends in the House than he did Tuesday in front of the Senate Banking Committee, giving some hope that Facebook could weather the political storm it unleashed a few weeks ago when it announced its Libra plans. One Republican on the financial services panel called the digital money idea brilliant, while others said they worried their Democratic colleagues were trying to stifle progress and thwart vital financial technology.“Washington must go beyond the hype and ensure that it’s not the place where innovation goes to die,” said Representative Patrick McHenry, the panel’s highest-ranking Republican. While saying he was appropriately skeptical of Facebook’s proposal, North Carolina’s McHenry urged lawmakers to move beyond making the company a political whipping boy.@RepMaxineWaters says of Facebook, and its plan to launch Libra Watch LIVE— Beth Ponsot (@bponsot) July 17, 2019 “Change is here. Digital currencies exist,” he said. “And Facebook’s entry in this new world is just confirmation.”Read More: Big Tech Is Taking a Bipartisan Beating All Over WashingtonIt hasn’t been an easy few weeks for Facebook and its cryptocurrency project. Ahead of its Capitol Hill grillings, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to lambaste Libra, while Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin indicated that the company would have a tough time satisfying a slew of regulatory issues.A parade of senators from both parties criticized Facebook at Tuesday’s Senate Banking hearing, saying the company can’t be trusted to handle consumers’ financial transactions. Much of the day focused on Facebook’s missteps involving privacy breaches and allowing Russian propaganda designed to influence the 2016 presidential election on its platform.Despite the outcry, it would be difficult for Congress to block Facebook’s plans. U.S. lawmakers haven’t passed any significant laws on cryptocurrencies, and no federal agency has established itself as the primary overseer for virtual coins. At least half a dozen regulators including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and parts of the Treasury Department have claimed some turf.Read More: Why Everybody (Almost) Hates Facebook’s Digital CoinIn his House testimony Wednesday, Marcus again said the company knew it was only “at the beginning of this journey” and was eager to get input from governments, central banks and others across the globe. The digital money operations are being headquartered in Switzerland.“We expect the review of Libra to be among the most extensive ever,” he said. “We are fully committed to working with regulators here and around the world.”But his refusal to agree to the moratorium proposed by Democrats, or even a pilot program that would test how Libra functions before a full-scale launch, enraged Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat whose constituency includes many Wall Street bankers. “You’ve breached the trust of users over and over again,” she said, adding that lawmakers should consider halting the project.Under questioning, Marcus alluded to the regulatory gray area that its digital coin could occupy.He told the panel that Facebook doesn’t consider the token to be a security or an exchange-traded fund, meaning it would not be regulated by the SEC. And though he said Libra may be seen as a commodity under current law, its oversight is still an open question. “We believe it is a payment tool,” Marcus said.Read More: Facebook Spurs Washington to Confront Its Crypto DitheringFacebook is currently talking to the Swiss financial regulator as well as the Group of Seven about what rules might apply, he added. Among the issues that are being addressed: privacy concerns, money laundering, terrorism finance and any potential impact on sovereign currencies.Marcus also sought to downplay Facebook’s leading role in the project, noting that it would be just one of dozens of corporations involved. However, he acknowledged that thus far the social media giant was the only company to have spent money or developed the technology for the project.Republicans on the panel generally argued that it was premature for Congress, or regulatory agencies, to clamp down on Libra. The government, they noted, shouldn’t get in the way of private sector progress.“This is absolutely brilliant,” Representative Sean Duffy, a Wisconsin Republican, told Marcus. “I was shocked at how bright it was.”(Adds details on hearing throughout.)To contact the reporters on this story: Ben Bain in Washington at;Robert Schmidt in Washington at rschmidt5@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jesse Westbrook at, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
