Eight Banks Seized, One with Ties to Obama; Regulators Allow "Unusual Bid" for Failed Bank

The bell rings once again on "Foreclosure Friday". The toll this week is 8 banks. One of the banks, Shore Bank, has ties to the Obama administration, Goldman Sachs, and other notables.

Eight Banks Shuttered as 2010 Failures Reach 118 

Bloomberg reports ShoreBank, Seven Others Shuttered as 2010 Failures Reach 118

ShoreBank Corp., the Chicago lender operating under a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. cease-and- desist order for 13 months, and seven other banks were shut by regulators as 2010 bank failures climbed to 118.

Regulators also closed four banks in California, two in Florida and one in Virginia. All eight closures cost the FDIC’s deposit-insurance fund $473.5 million, the agency said yesterday. This year’s bank failures will surpass last year’s total of 140, FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said last month in a Bloomberg Television interview.

Regulators Allow "Unusual Bid" for Shore Bank

The Wall Street Journal reports Regulators Seize ShoreBank; Management Takes Over

Regulators seized ShoreBank Corp. on Friday and agreed to sell assets to a team led by the community lender’s executives and backed by several large U.S. financial firms.

The bank closure, among the 118 failures in the U.S. this year, caps months of uncertainty for a $2.16 billion Chicago bank that had ties to the Obama administration and deep roots on Chicago’s South Side. The new institution will be known as Urban Partnership Bank and led by William Farrow, a former First Chicago Corp. executive who was ShoreBank’s president and chief operating officer at the time of its failure.

The decision to sell to management is a rare move by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which generally bars investors who own more than 10% of the failed bank from bidding on its assets. The FDIC also typically wants to know if bidders have "ever been an officer or director of a failed institution" and "participated in a material way in one or more transactions that caused a substantial loss to any such failed institution," according to an FDIC document.

The structure of the deal "is unusual," said Atlanta banking attorney Chip MacDonald.

The holding company will remain intact, according to a person familiar with the deal. Urban Partnership is backed by a consortium of large U.S. financial institutions, including Bank

Texas Ratios, Capitalization Ratios, 30 Day Late Loans of Recently Failing Banks

Texas Ratios, Capitalization Ratios, 30 Day Late Loans of Recently Failing Banks

Courtesy of Mish 

Inquiring Minds just may be interested in the Texas Ratios, capitalization ratios, and percentages of 30 day late loans or higher at recently failed banks.

Texas Ratio Definition

The Texas ratio is a measure of a bank’s credit troubles. Developed by Gerard Cassidy and others at RBC Capital Markets, it is calculated by dividing the value of the lender’s non-performing assets (Non performing loans + Real Estate Owned) by the sum of its tangible common equity capital and loan loss reserves.

In analyzing Texas banks during the early 1980s recession, Cassidy noted that banks tended to fail when this ratio reached 1:1, or 100%. He noted a similar pattern among New England banks during the recession of the early 1990s.

Bank Failures 2010-04-30

Westernbank Puerto Rico: 136%
Total Capital: 8%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -7%

Eurobank Puerto Rico: 213%
Total Capital: 4%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -10%

R-G Premier Bank of Puerto Rico: 270%
Total Capital: 6%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -19%

CF Bancorp (MI): 421%
Total Capital: -1%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -10%

Champion Bank (MO): 344%
Total Capital: 2%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -19%

Champion Bank (MO): 194%
Total Capital: 2%
Total Capital% minus (30+ days late or more / Total Assets): -6%

7 Bank Failures Cost FDIC About $7.4 Billion

The above 7 bank failures will take a $7.4 billion bite out of FDIC deposit fund.

Emergency Powers Stabilize Puerto Rico Banks

Inquiring minds are reading Puerto Rico Banks Seized as Regulators Waive Deposit Limits.

Regulators used emergency powers to stabilize Puerto Rico’s banks, putting almost a third of the U.S. territory’s deposits in Popular Inc. and giving control of another lender to a Canadian firm.

Deposit limits were waived to allow Banco Popular of Puerto Rico to hold $19.5 billion, or 31.4 percent of the island’s total, after its purchase of Westernbank Puerto Rico, the Federal Reserve said yesterday in a statement. Three banks on the island were shut at a cost to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. of $5.3

1,000 Banks to Fail In Next Two Years: Bank CEO

By: Natalie Erlich,
CNBC, Writer/Producer
 

The US banking system will lose some 1,000 institutions over the next two years, said John Kanas, whose private equity firm bought BankUnited of Florida in May.

“We’ve already lost 81 this year,” Kanas told CNBC. “The numbers are climbing every day. Many of these institutions nobody’s ever heard of. They’re smaller companies.” (See the accompanying video for the complete interview.)

Failed banks tend to be smaller and private, which exacerbates the problem for small business borrowers, said Kanas, who became CEO of BankUnited when his firm bought the bank and is the former chairman and CEO of North Fork bank.

DAX (Germany) About To Send A Bearish Message To The S&P 500?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble.

Is the DAX index from Germany about to send a bearish message to stocks in Europe and the States? Sure could!

This chart looks at the DAX over the past 9-years. It’s spent the majority of the past 8-years inside of rising channel (1), creating a series of higher lows and higher highs.

It looks to have created a “Double Top” as it was kissing the underside of the rising channel last year at (2).

After creating the potential double top, the DAX index has continued to create a series of lower highs, while experiencing a bearish divergence with the S...

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.

Still, the stock market has been better over the last 10 (7%) an...

It's Not Capitalism, it's Crony Capitalism

Excerpt:

The threat to America is this: we have abandoned our core philosophy. Our first principle of this nation as a meritocracy, a free-market economy, where competition drives economic decision-making. In its place, we have allowed a malignancy to fester, a virulent pus-filled bastardized form of economics so corrosive in nature, so dangerously pestilent, that it presents an extinction-level threat to America – both the actual nation and the “idea” of America.
