Hedge funds including Marshall Wace LLP made more than $7 Billion in profits by betting against bank shares during the recent crisis that rocked the sector, their biggest such haul since the 2008 financial crisis.

The bumper gains came during a bleak month for banks, with the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and the emergency sale of Credit Suisse affecting the wider sector. Amid plunging share prices, German chancellor Olaf Scholz was forced to dismiss fears about the health of Deutsche Bank and California-based First Republic was bailed out by larger rivals.

Short sellers — who borrow stock and sell it, hoping to buy it back at a lower price — made estimated total profits of around $1.3 Billion from short positions taken against SVB. A further $848 Million in gains came from bets against First Republic, whose shares fell 89% in March. Hedge funds also made $684 Million from shorting Credit Suisse.

March was the single most profitable month for short sellers in the banking sector since the 2008 financial crash.

Many hedge funds responded to the growing turmoil by increasing their short positions.

London-based Marshall Wace, one of the world’s biggest hedge funds, was also among those placing bets, shorting 0.7% of Deutsche Bank’s shares, netting gains of around $40 Million from bets against the German lender.

0847 GMT - U.K. banking stocks are caught up in the market confusion caused by Credit Suisse's AT1 bond write down, says Shore Capital in a note. "Share prices are likely to remain sentiment-driven and so volatile in the near-term, and we would therefore encourage long-term investors to take advantage of the excellent buying opportunity in the U.K. banking sector that this has created," analyst Gary Greenwood says, noting that U.K. banks are in a strong position to withstand the economic downturn with strong balance sheets. Shares in the sector extend last week's losses, with NatWest and Barclays both down around 6%, Standard Chartered falling 5.3%, HSBC down 3.5% and Lloyds 2.7%. (elena.vardon@wsj.com)

10.10am: Citi sees limited UK impact from SVBAre the falls in bank share prices a buying opportunity? Broker Citi suggests it could be. It sees very limited read-across from the issues facing Silicon Valley Bank in the US to the European Banking sector.The bank noted European banks have less deposit concentration, are still seeing relatively healthy deposit flows, operate with large liquidity portfolios, and remain well capitalized."We also see less risk to capital in the event that balance sheet positions in negative carry do have to be crystallized."Citi remains overweight European banks with its top-picks BBVA, Lloyds, Intesa.JP Morgan said: "Whilst we do not believe there is a banking crisis in the making and the SVB situation is somewhat unique, we do expect increased investor scrutiny on 1) bond portfolios as a percentage of deposits; 2) mark-to-market of Available For Sale (AFS) as well as Held To Maturity (HTM) books; and 3) deposit outflows and the pace of."

While the share price is volatile, it seems that there is quite a lot of buyer support whenever it dips to around 530 GB pence. That said, for the moment there is obviously insufficient support to keep the price above 550. The share price has been under 600 since mid-December 2020 when COVID first appeared in Chin.
I think the share is seriously undervalued. But it doesn't follow that the price will rise. Looking back over 20 years of trading, support seems to evaporate quite quickly when the share price breaks 800 pence. A problem for all of us is the poor dividend compared to earnings; it should be around $US0.50.

The HSBC (LSE: HSBA) share price rose to its highest level in four months yesterday at 442p following its third quarter earnings release. And it continues to inch up in today’s trading as well. As a result, in the past year, the FTSE 100 bank’s share price has risen more than 35%. I think the stock can rise more in the coming months, or even double. The operative word here is can. There are several reasons why I believe that.
Still below its pre-pandemic level

The first reason is that the HSBC share price is still far lower than its pre-pandemic level. There is no denying that it has come a long way in the past year, especially since the stock market rally of last November. But it is still some 35% below the levels it was at in mid-February last year, before the Covid panic started. This is in stark contrast to the fact that many FTSE 100 stocks have reached their pre-pandemic levels and even surpassed them. After its results today, I reckon there is now a good chance that it can continue to rise towards these levels. The bank’s post-tax profits rose by over 90% in the third quarter compared to the same time last year. They more than doubled in the first nine months of the year.
HSBC share price is dirt-cheap

In fact, after today’s results, my estimates suggest HSBC’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is at a little under 10 times. This compares favourably to the FTSE 100 average P/E of almost 20 times cited by Bloomberg. This too indicates that there is opportunity for its share price to rise further as investors seek out undervalued stocks. In fact, if HSBC’s share price were to increase to the average FTSE 100 ratio, its price would more than double according to my estimates. But that would be only if the current market mood stays as it is. Non-trivial dividends

Its dividends are decent too. They are not big enough to put it in the running for a major income stock, but at 3.6%, its yield is higher than the average FTSE 100 yield of 3.4%. This does give it a slight edge over other potential growth stocks with little or no dividends to speak of. The bank has done a fair bit of work to streamline its operations as well. This includes selling off some of its interests in the US and focusing more on its lucrative Asian market.
Risks to HSBC

There are risks to the stock too, of course. A big one is the Chinese economy, which is slowing down now. And Evergrande’s example shows that there could be more pain in store if the recovery falters and the Chinese government is unable to support growth for much longer. The bank also believes that the threat of Covid-19 still persists. And we should watch out for this factor carefully as the winter months loom.My takeaway

Last month I had said that there is upside to the stock, but was not sure if it could reach 600p. After its results, considering the market mood and the general environment of recovery, I think that it can get there and even exceed it. As optimistic as it sounds, my rough estimates suggest that it could even double. HSBC is a buy for me now.
