bernie37: Summary Barclays benefits from an inflationary environment. Strong tailwinds in trading income, higher rates and nominal GDP. The credit risks are valid but mitigated by conservative provisioning. It trades at close to 50 cents in the dollar. Investors should look through the macro noise. Barclays (NYSE:BCS) has quite a diversified business model which includes both a bulge bracket investment bank as well as the UK and U.S. consumer banks (the latter is a Credit Cards business). This positions it well to weather the current macro environment. It targets RoTE above 10% for full-year 2022 even when you include the Legal and Conduct costs of GBP500 million expected in Q2'2022. Amazingly, it trades at just over ~0.5x tangible book value which suggests an earnings yield close to ~20% given the current share price. Barclays has a strong capital ratio ("CET1") of 13.8% as of Q1'2022 which is above the mid-point of its 13% to 14% target. As such, it is expected to generate a significant amount of excess capital with an earnings yield of 20%. Shareholders should therefore continue to benefit from very accretive buybacks as well as a progressive dividend. The main concern currently holding the share price back relates to the global macroeconomic uncertainties and especially the fears of a recession both in the UK and the U.S. The current macro situation and banks This is quite an interesting macro situation for a bank like Barclays. The investment bank clearly benefits from the volatility in its trading desks. And the current volatility in fixed income, as well as FX, is a bonanza for the large investment banks. Institutional investors are forced to keep on repositioning their fixed income portfolios and the bid-offer gaps are wider than usual. So the intermediaries, such as BCS, benefit from both volumes and margins. Similarly, corporates' treasuries are also very active in seeking to hedge interest rates and FX exposures. These revenue tailwinds, however, are somewhat offset by lower income on the Banking side as debt and equity issuances dry up and M&A advisory mandates are mostly on hold. Overall though, the trading revenue benefits should outweigh the slow issuance markets. And once the market turmoil ends, there will be a revenue catch-up in debt, equity issuance as well as M&A advisory - so most of that income will be delayed as opposed to lost revenue. On the consumer side, banks benefit from a hike in interest rates. BCS provided an illustrative forecast of what a +25 bps parallel hike means for its pre-tax income: Credit risk and recession On the flip side, the main risk investors are concerned with is outsized credit losses in a recession scenario. This is likely to manifest mainly in the U.S. and UK unsecured lending (i.e. mainly the Cards business). This is a valid concern of course but Barclays has a very conservative provisioning methodology. The CFO recently explained this in an analysts' meeting: ....I would say in terms of pressure, in the opposite direction, we obviously have the uncertain macroeconomic environment that we have now. There is the question of credit risk. We feel like we are well covered, we've got a good balance sheet position. So, if you look at our unsecured ratios or even if you look at the totality, we've got £6.0bn on the balance sheet, £3.5bn of which is against non-defaulted stock, so well prepared in terms of impairment Final thoughts The thesis is relatively straightforward. Barclay's diversified business model is resilient and should benefit from an inflationary environment. The upsides include a trading income bonanza, higher yields, and nominally higher GDP (and spending in the economy benefiting its Payments division). The potential risks (predominantly credit risk) are well-managed by careful risk management and a conservative level of provisioning. The firm is set up to deliver ~20% earnings yield (sustainably so) yet trades at 50 cents in the dollar. At the same time, it takes advantage of the distressed valuation by buying back stocks.

bernie37: Barclays: Global Markets Will Outperform After JPM Investor Day, we are more confident in Barclays thanks to the Global markets division which will drive Q2 performance. The reinstated buyback will support stock price appreciation. Solid Q1 and CFO is confident on IB division. After our last update on HSBC and our comment on UBS and Credit Suisse, today we are looking at Barclays (NYSE:BCS). It is the first time that we're commenting on the British multinational bank. But it is a company that does not need any introduction, especially for those working in finance. Barclays is a global investment bank and financial services company headquartered in London. Q1 Comment In the first quarter, the British institution recorded a net profit of £1.4 billion above market expectations which estimated £644 million. However, compared with the same period last year, the drop was 18%. Looking again at the top-line, revenues improved by 10% to £6.5 billion - this was driven by solid investment banking earnings despite peak market volatility. Operating expenses increased to £4.11 billion from £3.58 billion in the first quarter of 2021, this was due to higher expenses for the ongoing litigation in the United States. Going deeper into the investigation, last month, the UK bank announced it had sold $15.2 billion in more investment products than it was allowed. Following this, the bank set aside around £540 million which is currently under investigation by the SEC. Following the announcement, Barclays emphasized that was delaying the start of the buyback program, and it remained committed to the program with the intention to launch it as soon as possible after the termination of the deposit requirements reached with the SEC. This is exactly what happened, and the bank has recently appointed JPM to start the share repurchase. Looking at the other important financial metrics, Barclays' CET1 ratio stood at 13.8%, down from 15.1% in the same period last year. Return on tangible equity was 11.5%, also down from 14.7% in the same quarter last year. The bank said it will continue to aim for a return on tangible equity of more than 10%. The findings come after a turbulent end to 2021, with longtime CEO Jes Staley stepping down in November following an investigation by regulators into his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. His replacement stressed that earnings growth was driven by global markets which helped clients navigate the current market volatility caused by geopolitical and economic challenges including the devastating war in Ukraine and the impact of higher interest rates in the US and UK. Why Are We Positive? And Our Conclusion Having participated at the JPMorgan investor day, we understood that the Markets division is up by more than 15% in Q2 too. Our internal team believes that this is a positive catalyst for the British bank with the Markets division upgrades likely to more than offset Banking division downgrades. Our internal estimates are replicating Q1 performance with another £1.6bn results in 2Q despite the usual seasonality. We believe this can be achieved thanks to the higher increase in rates and implied market volatility. Barclays' franchise is likely to benefit from the higher VIX environment supported by higher volumes and margins. Secondly, the investment bank pipeline is pretty strong, and we believe that will drive upgrades. It is true that the current environment is not very favorable but the CFO seems pretty optimistic about the franchise. For the above points, here at the Lab, we increment our 2022 EPS guidance by 5% with a forecast ROTE of 10% (higher than Wall Street consensus). With the share repurchase revival, we believe that Barclays' underperformance will reverse thanks also to lower provisions and Markets 2022 higher guidance.

bernie37: Credit Suisse upgrades Barclays The global investment bank slapped an ‘outperform rating’ on Barclays, as well as increasing its price target to 245p from 240p. CS said the UK lender’s underperformance will change as "over-issuance concerns dissipate, the market drives 2022 upgrades and the presence of significant provision overlays de-risks the income statement in case of economic weakness". Barclays’ resumption of its share buyback programme (coupled with second-quarter results to be released in July) is also expected to be a share price catalyst.
stonedyou: Barclays PLC has target price hiked by Credit Suisse. Target price has now been set at 240p, a 17% increase from 205p. Credit Suisse has upped its Barclays PLC (LSE:BARC) target price and maintained its outperform rating in the belief volatility should help its investment bank operation. A new target price has now been set at 240p, a 17% increase from the previous 205p. Analysts at Credit Suisse added that its “inference from the results” released yesterday was that the bank should continue to benefit from the current macro and market conditions. “Barclays' FICC franchise market share increases when macro outperforms, and its equities franchise market share increases when derivatives outperform, ” said the note. The broker also expects that the concerns over the investment bank performance that have driven the shares lower this year should reverse now after the latest update from the bank.
stonedyou: Barclays delays buyback as Q1 profit beats forecasts. Barclays delayed its £1bn share buyback further as a £523m conduct charge caused the bank's first-quarter profit to fall. Pretax profit dropped 7% to £2.23bn in the three months to the end of March from a year earlier as income rose 10% to £6.5bn. The decline was caused by the conduct charge which covered over-issuance of securities in the US and customer compensation costs for a separate matter. Profit was well ahead of expectations. Analysts had on average expected pretax profit of £1.32bn but Barclays income growth was surprisingly strong, powered by its corporate and investment bank in volatile markets. Barclays shares rose 0.8% to 143.1p at 08:54 BST. Barclays said on 28 March it issued billions of pounds more bonds in the US than it had agreed. As a result it pushed back its planned £1bn buyback to the second quarter. On Thursday the bank said it would delay the buyback until it had come to an agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Barclays said it remained committed to the buyback. Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor, said: "On the whole Barclays has had a strong start to the year, although the fine relating to over-issuance of securities in the US has punched something of a hole in profits." The FTSE 100 lender said the conduct charge combined with expectations for inflation and performance costs would lead to annual operating expenses of about £15bn. The bank's common equity tier 1 capital ratio shrank to 13.8% from 15.1% at the end of December. C. S. Venkatakrishnan, Barclays' chief executive, said: "A strong Q1 performance demonstrated Barclays' ability to deliver broad-based income growth across all operating businesses. Our performance includes the relevant costs relating to the over-issuance of securities in the US and customer remediation of a legacy loan portfolio."
