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

12:24 EDTJPM, BACOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages have moved in a narrow range as the price of crude continues to fall. Near noon, WTI crude was down another 5% to roughly $60 per barrel. The weakness is effecting equities, as investors are concerned the oil price weakness is indicative of the slowing global economy. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., House and Senate lawmakers reportedly reached a deal on a nearly $1.1T bill to fund most of the government through September and avert a shutdown. The EIA estimated crude oil supplies grew 1.5 Mmbbls last week, while consensus expected a 2.7 Mmbbls decrease. The Treasury budget statement for November is expected at 2:00 pm ET, with the consensus expectation for a deficit of $63B. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan (JPM) declined 2% after guidelines proposed yesterday by the Federal Reserve would likely result in the firm managing to a higher capital buffer. Additionally, JPMorgan CFO Marianne Lake, speaking earlier at a Goldman Sachs conference, said the bank sees its Q4 reported markets revenues down by a "high teens" percentage and that its "core" markets performance in Q4, excluding the sale of physical commodities and allocation of preferred dividend expense, is indicated down 4% to-date compared to last year's quarter. Lake became the latest bank executive to discuss a Q4 trading slump, after Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan, speaking yesterday at the same financial conference, said the bank expects its Q4 trading revenue to be down on both a linked-quarter and year-over-year basis. Also yesterday, Citigroup (C) CEO Michael Corbat estimated that the bank's Q4 markets revenue would be down year-over-year by about 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Analogic (ALOG), which rose 12% after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. Also higher was Novadaq (NVDQ), which gained 11.5% after the company signed a multi-year distributor agreement with LifeNet Health that analysts at Canaccord said could potentially be a big deal and materially help its near and long-term prospects. Among the noteworthy losers was Yum! Brands (YUM), which dropped nearly 5% after the owner of the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands issued a negative preannouncement on its China business and provided lower than expected 2015 EPS guidance. Also lower were shares of Krispy Kreme (KKD), which sunk 8% after the donut maker reported weaker than expected earnings and revenue. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 164.41, or 0.92%, to 17,636.79, the Nasdaq was down 32.79, or 0.69%, to 4,733.68, and the S&P 500 was down 17.43, or 0.85%, to 2,042.39.
