Falling bank shares

European banks are in the eye of a new financial storm

Feb 13th 2016

IF THE start of the year has been desperate for the world’s stockmarkets, it has been downright disastrous for shares in banks. Financial stocks are down by 19% in America. The declines have been even steeper elsewhere. Japanese banks’ shares have plunged by 36% since January 1st; Italian banks’ by 31% and Greek banks’ by a horrifying 60% (see chart). The fall in the overall European banking index of 24% has brought it close to the lows it plumbed in the summer of 2012, when the euro zone seemed on the verge of disintegration until Mario Draghi, the president of the European Central Bank (ECB), promised to do “whatever it takes” to save it.

In fact, the bank shares have plunged so dramatically that the overall European bank index has come “close to the lows it plumbed in the summer of 2012” (_________________, _____________).

Rolls-Royce cuts dividend for first time in almost 25 years

Rolls-Royce has cut its dividend payment to shareholders for the first time in almost 25 years and warned of further job cuts to come. The final dividend payment to investors has been slashed by 50%, to 7.1p a share. Analysts had expected a 30% reduction.

But relief that the engineering group had not issued another profits warning saw its shares jump 13%, to 602p, although the share price has still halved in value over the past two years.

Sandy Morris, analyst at the company’s house broker Jefferies, said: “The unchanged 2016 guidance should help stop the rot in sentiment. The 50% cut in the final dividend is a painful step, but Rolls makes a fairly clear commitment to a progressive dividend policy.”
