Apparently, Some Traders Are Nervous About Bank Earnings

Apparently, Some Traders Are Nervous About Bank Earnings

Citigroup (NYSE: C) got the party started on Monday while JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM), Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) and others in the financial space, continued the earnings parade yesterday. In other words, its financial services earnings season and there are a slew of reports coming from the sector this week and into next week.

What Happened

With so many earnings reports coming in over the next few days from the S&P 500′s third-largest sector, it would be reasonable to expect that traders would be considering the Direxion Daily Financial Bull 3X Shares (NYSE: FAS) or the bearish equivalent, the Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (NYSE: FAZ).

With a spate of short-term catalysts, those being the aforementioned avalanche of earnings reports, the time is right to consider leveraged exchange-traded funds such as FAS and FAZ, but traders appear to be on the sidelines for the time being.

Why It’s Important

For the five- and 10-day periods ending Friday, July 12, FAS saw outflows of $63.11 million and $88.69 million, respectively, good for the largest outflows among all Direxion leveraged ETFs over those time frames, according to issuer data.

That could be a sign that traders believe that following the recently released results of the Federal Reserve’s stress tests that plenty of good news is already baked into bank stocks or that traders are fretting about lower interest rates weighing on banks’ net interest margins.

On Monday, Citigroup reported second-quarter earnings of $1.95 per share on revenue of $18.76 billion, beating Wall Street estimates calling for earnings of $1.81 on revenue of $18.49 billion, but the bank’s net interest margin fell to 2.67% from 2.70%.

What’s Next

While data confirm traders have been scampering out of the bullish FAS, they have not necessarily been flocking to the bearish FAZ.

Volume in FAZ has been trending higher, but the bearish bank ETF saw inflows of just $3.49 million for the five days ending July 12, according to Direxion data.

Fantastic Plastic: Berry Global Analyst Sees Solid Earnings Growth Prospects

Fantastic Plastic: Berry Global Analyst Sees Solid Earnings Growth Prospects

Berry Global Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is poised for robust earnings and free cash flow growth in coming years, driven mostly by the acquisition of RPC Group, according to JPMorgan.

The Analyst

Tyler Langton reinstated coverage of Berry Global Group with an Overweight rating and $66 price target. 

The Thesis

Synergies from the RPC acquisition could exceed the target of $150 million and reach as high as $200 million, Langton said in a Tuesday note. (See his track record here.) 

JPMorgan’s 2020 and 2021 volume growth estimates for RPC of 1.5% may prove conservative, given that the business generated organic growth close to 3% in recent years, the analyst said. 

Langton expressed optimism regarding an upturn in volume growth in HH&S and EM beginning in 2020.

HH&S volumes could improve due to new capacity, and EM volumes may benefit from supply disruptions, he said. 

In 2018, Berry Global was unable to pass through $100 million of higher costs, Langton said, adding that he expects the company to recover $50 million of these costs in 2019 and the remaining amount in 2021.

“We believe Berry’s discount to the group should narrow as it pays down debt and generates synergies from the RPC acquisition, sees improving organic volume growth rates, and recovers the higher costs from F2018.” 

Price Action

Berry Global shares were trading higher by 1.98% at $53.46 at the time of publication Tuesday.

BofA Stays On The Sidelines Of Thomson Reuters

BofA Stays On The Sidelines Of Thomson Reuters

Thomson Reuters Corp (NYSE: TRI) has sold 55% of its stake in Refinitiv to Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX).

While the sale makes Thomson Reuters a “cleaner, faster growth story that should be a solid defensive compounder over time,” the news already seems priced in and leaving little room for upside, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

The Analyst

Bank of America’s Gary Bisbee reinstated coverage of Thomson Reuters with a Neutral rating and a price target of $70.

The Thesis

The Refinitiv transaction has boosted Thomson Reuters’ growth outlook and leadership positions in key markets, Bisbee said in the note.

Thomson Reuters has recently increased investments and management focus on the remaining businesses, which has resulted in moderate revenue acceleration, Bisbee mentioned. He expects the company to generate double-digit compound growth in earnings and cash flow in the next few years.

The analyst added that Refinitiv could achieve profit growth and deleveraging under Blackstone, driving appreciation in the value of Thomson Reuters’ remaining 45% stake.

Bisbee cited the risks of owning Thomson Reuters as the relatively full valuation of its stock, pressure on the Global Print and Reuters News businesses, heightened execution risks and high expectations.

Price Action

Shares of Thomson Reuters had risen 0.77% to $67.90 at time of publication.

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.
