UBS says HSBC sale ‘driven by profit-taking’

A drop in HSBC’s share price following news of the Silicon Valley bank’s purchase of its UK subsidiary for £1 ($1.21) was “driven by profit-taking, not fundamental weakness,” UBS analysts said in a note.

HSBC confirmed the acquisition, excluding the assets and liabilities of SVB UK’s parent company, Silicon Valley Bank.

“We think the 9% decline in stocks since Wednesday is profit-taking and the sector cycle means no change in outlook: deposit competition increases the value of the best deposit holders,” UBS said.

“We see room for unanticipated value creation through volumes, cost reductions (US, UK) and possible disposals.”

In the broader banking sector, the SVB crisis could lead to more liquidity regulation for banks, investor preference for larger banks over smaller banks and more competition for retail-focused banks and deposits over business-focused banks, analysts said. 2024-25 to reduce net interest limits.

The SVB situation is a result of easy monetary policy, says Leon Cooperman

Silicon Valley Bank went under on Friday, and investor Leon Cooperman thinks the situation is a byproduct of low interest rates from the Federal Reserve.

“This is the result of a decade of stupid monetary policy of zero to negative rates,” Cooperman, president of Omega Advisors, told CNBC’s Scott Wapner.

The central bank cut rates to zero to stabilize the economy after the 2008 financial crisis. Rates remained low for years until the Fed began raising them in the late 2010s. However, in 2020, the central bank brought rates back to zero as Covid-19 spread across the globe.

Over the past year, the central bank has been raising rates to curb inflationary pressures.
