Finding The Gems
After the fall of Silicon Valley Bank (SIVB), Signature Bank (SBNY), and Silvergate (SI), stocks of regional banks have been wrecked. In many cases, babies have been thrown out with the bath water. The task for prudent investors is to pick gems in the wreckage.
However, it is not an easy task because banks’ balance sheets are somewhat opaque. Often, only regulators and the bank’s management know what is going on.
The Potential Gem
New York Community Bancorp (NYCB) is a potential gem. How do we know this? Regulators have just allowed NYCB to buy certain assets of Signature Bridge Bank. NYCB is buying $12.9B worth of loans and the assumption of $34B in deposits.
The thinking is that regulators would not have allowed this if NYCB had problems on its balance sheet like many other banks.
$2.7B Potential Windfall
In addition to gaining $34B in deposits, NYCB is buying the loans at a $2.7B discount. Assuming these loans are ultimately paid, this is a potential big windfall for NYCB. Even if there are delinquencies in these loans, $2.7B appears to provide enough cushion.
As always, caution is warranted because these are complex transactions. We believe that our logic is sound, but there is no guarantee that regulators and bank management know all of the potential problems. For this reason, risk control is important.
