07:39 EDTJPM, USB, BAC, WFCBank of America takes new mortgage course, WSJ reports
Bank of America (BAC) has cut back its mortgage business, but is still making a lot of money from it, reports the Wall Street Journal's. In the fourth quarter of 2012, BofA originated about $22B, about a third of what it produced in Q1 of 2011. The bank's gain-on-sale margin, or the revenue it books divided by the value of mortgages originated, was 4.33%, compared with about 2.85% at J.P. Morgan Chase (JPM), 2.56% at Wells Fargo (WFC) and about 2.13% at U.S. Bancorp (USB). The trouble is, BofA may be hard-pressed to sustain this performance, especially if interest rates on government bonds continue to rise. That will put more pressure on the bank to boost its share of the mortgage market so that it can maintain this revenue source, the Journal says. Reference Link

07:10 EDTJPM, WFC, BAC, USBBanks clash with regulators over energy lending, WSJ reports
Banks are fighting with regulators over loan reviews that might compress the flow of net credit to the oil patch, the Wall Street Journal reports. The disagreement is focused on the narrow issue of loans secured by oil and gas companies' reserves, but it highlights the point of how postcrisis regulation of the financial industry impacts sectors outside of Wall Street, the report says. Caught in between banks and regulators are the small and medium exploration and production companies that rely on credit lines using their energy reserves as collateral, the report says. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link

16:36 EDTBACOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session sharply lower and remained that way throughout the session. There was little in the way of buying as each of the major equity indexes slid over 1% and the market internals were decidedly negative. The auto industry and biotech sector were both notably weak, after the French government called for an investigation into the entire auto industry in the wake of the Volkswagen (VLKAY) emissions scandal and Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton presented a plan to limit the cost of drugs for consumers. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.6% to 224.5 in July, which was better than the 0.4% rise that was expected. The Richmond Fed factory index fell to -5 in September, versus the reading of 2 that was expected. In Asia, the Asian Development Bank cut its growth forecast for the region, citing a weaker outlook for China and India and a delayed recovery in the world's advanced economies. The bank now sees the Chinese economy growing 6.8% this year and 6.7% next year, down from its previous forecasts of 7.2% and 7%, respectively. COMPANY NEWS: Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs (GS) Chairman and CEO, disclosed that he was diagnosed with lymphoma. "Fortunately, my form of lymphoma is highly curable and my doctors' and my own expectation is that I will be cured," Blankfein stated in an open letter that was shared by the bank... Bank of America (BAC) shareholders approved a proposal to ratify the 2014 amendments to the company's bylaws that permitted the board of directors to determine its leadership structure, meaning Brian Moynihan can retain his dual role as both Chairman and CEO... Shares of several fertilizer companies slid after Mosaic (MOS) announced it will reduce its potash production in response to current crop nutrient market conditions, primarily related to delayed fertilizer purchases in Brazil and North America. Shares of Mosaic finished the day down 7% at $33.87 following last night's announcement, while Potash (POT) fell 6.5% and Agrium (AGU) dropped 3.5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ashland (ASH), which advanced $2.78, or 2.6%, to $108.50 after announcing it will proceed with a plan to separate into two independent, publicly traded companies. Also higher was Weatherford (WFT), which gained 90c, or 10.7%, to $9.31 after cancelling plans for a public share offering, after which research firms Jefferies and Iberia both reiterated Buy-equivalent ratings on the stock. Among the noteworthy losers were Office Depot (ODP) and Staples (SPLS), which declined a respective 4% and 5.8% after the New York Post quoted a source as saying the FTC may move to block their merger plan. Also lower was Groupon (GRPN), which slipped 2.2% to $4.08 after announcing plans to cut 1,100 jobs related primarily to its international operations. ConAgra (CAG), Carnival (CCL), and CarMax (KMX) fell 7%, 5.5%, and 4.65%, respectively, following their quarterly earnings reports. INDEXES: The Dow fell 179.72, or 1.09%, to 16,330.47, the Nasdaq lost 72.23, or 1.5%, to 4,756.72, and the S&P 500 dropped 24.23, or 1.23%, to 1,942.74.
