Like bigger rival UBS, Credit Suisse has cut investment banking to focus on wealth management, reducing the financial impact when markets turn volatile. Rohner, who said Credit Suisse’s merger advisory business made it the only European bank able to match up against U.S. rivals, also played down speculation that the bank’s low share price could make it a takeover target. The stock fell more than a third last year, but is up 7.7 percent so far this year. “Banks operate in a very regulated environment. Hostile takeovers are almost ruled out these days,” he said.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - The head of Australia’s sovereign wealth fund criticized National Australia Bank Ltd on Monday for the double resignation of its CEO and chairman after a misconduct inquiry, saying it was “not good practice” for both to go at once. The comments from Future Fund Chairman and former federal treasurer Peter Costello put Australia’s big banks on notice that investors are paying close attention to governance issues in the wake of the year-long inquiry into financial-sector misconduct. The Future Fund is Australia’s biggest investor with A$8.5 billion ($6 billion) in shares.
“If the NAB was managing itself well ., the chairman would go first and then a new chairman or chairwoman would appoint the CEO,” vintage cartier gold cufflinks Costello told reporters on a media call, referring to the resignations last week of NAB Chief Executive Andrew Thorburn and Chairman Ken Henry, “I don’t think it’s good practice to have an outgoing chairman to appoint the new CEO (because) the first thing any CEO coming into the NAB is going to want to know is who’s the chairman? I don’t know if they’ve handled the transition well.”..
Thorburn and Henry resigned on Thursday days after being singled out for strong criticism in the final report of the Royal Commission inquiry, which found widespread greed and wrongdoing in the financial sector. The CEO would leave this month but Henry would stay until a replacement was found, the bank said. Henry said last week he needed to stay to “ensure an orderly succession of the CEO and also to ensure appropriate board renewal”. Asked about Costello’s comments, an NAB representative had no further comment.
(Reuters) - With expectations for slowing growth escalating, U.S, fund managers are selectively avoiding stocks in consumer companies as lofty valuations, concerns about declining vintage cartier gold cufflinks earnings estimates, and consumer confidence keep them on guard, Low U.S, unemployment and rising wages should point to a healthy consumer, but worries about global growth, domestic U.S, politics and a U.S.-China trade war have been wearing on consumer and investor moods, Wall Street expects fourth-quarter earnings growth of 14.7 percent for the S&P 500’s consumer discretionary index - below the 17.8 percent consensus from October at the beginning of the fourth quarter, according to data from Refinitiv as of Friday morning..
And for the first quarter, analysts expect discretionary earnings to fall 1.7 percent, compared with expectations for 6 percent growth on Oct. 1. For consumer staples, fourth-quarter earnings are expected to grow 4.2 percent, down from the 6.7 percent consensus in October, with 0.7 percent growth expected for the first quarter. In comparison, the broader S&P benchmark is expected to report fourth-quarter earnings growth of 16.8 percent and decline 0.1 percent in the first quarter. “Our thoughts on the global consumer is that the marginal data points coming in are more negative than positive,” said Eric Freedman, Chief Investment Officer at U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Minneapolis. His firm is “market weight to slightly underweight” on consumer discretionary while it views consumer staples valuations as “fair to slightly over valued.”.
U.S consumer confidence fell to a 1-1/2 year-low in January as a partial shutdown of the government and financial markets turmoil left households nervous, according to a Conference Board survey, Shawn Kravetz, Esplanade Capital LLC’s chief investment officer, said while the “consumer remains generally robust, most people have had something in their life in the past few months that has given them pause.”, “For the wealthy it was watching the stock market go down 15 percent in the fourth quarter,” Kravetz said, “For government workers, it was weeks of no cash flow and uncertainty, For many it was the uncertainty of the shutdown and what the secondary effects might be to them directly, to their jobs vintage cartier gold cufflinks or businesses, or the economy at large ., everyone was touched directly or indirectly, That didn’t pop the bubble but certainly let a little air out.”..
