U.S. bank stocks recover after falling amid SVB collapse


Shares of California-based First Republic Bank rose sharply on Tuesday as concerns about the health of the regional bank eased after a day of heavy selling that had plunged more than 61% the day before.

It is reported CNBC.

Shares of First Republic rose 36% on the session, PacWest jumped 44%, while KeyCorp gained 11% and Western Alliance – 20%.

First Republic shares fell 61.8% on Monday. Executive Chairman Jim Herbert told CNBC that the bank is not seeing large outflows and is operating as usual. The bank also announced on Sunday that it had received additional liquidity from JPMorgan and the Federal Reserve.

“Confident statements from financial leaders seemed to help support growth on Tuesday,” the newspaper noted.

Charles Schwab CEO Walt Bettinger told CNBC that the company is seeing inflows in “significant numbers.” Meanwhile, KeyCorp CEO Chris Gorman said his bank has not seen significant deposit outflows in recent days and is actually receiving cash inflows from retail customers.

However, First Republic shares rose to intraday highs after S&P Global revised the bank’s credit rating to negative, citing volatility in deposit flows.

In addition to supporting deposits at SVB and Signature Bank, which were closed on Sunday, federal regulators also announced efforts to stabilize the broader banking system.

One of them is the Fed’s Bank Refinancing Program, which will allow banks to exchange certain high-quality assets for cash without reserving losses at market prices.

The rise came despite Moody’s Investors Service downgrading its outlook on the US banking system from stable to negative.
