Spanish Bank Capital Shortfall As "Good" As Expected: Live Press Conference Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

Spanish stress test results are out. Surprise - Oliver Wyman's audit finds that Spanish banks have an approximate EUR60bn shortfall - as expected - see below for pass/fails.

  • *SPAIN SAYS 7 BANKS HAVE NO CAPITAL NEEDS       :SAN SM, BBVA SM
  • *SPAIN STRESS TESTS SHOW CAPITAL SHORTFALL OF EU59.3 BLN :SAN SM
  • *SPAIN BANKS HAVE EU53.7 B CAPITAL SHORTFALL AFTER TAX IMPACT
  • *BANKIA STRESS TEST SHORTFALL AFTER TAX EFFECT IS EU24.74 BLN
  • *SANTANDER, BBVA, CAIXABANK, KUTXA PASS STRESS TEST      :SAN SM
  • *SABADELL, BANKINTER, UNICAJA PASS STRESS TEST  :SAN SM, BBVA SM

Capital needs: Bankia: €24.7; Catalunya Caixa: 10.8; Novagalicia 7.2; Banco de Valencia: 3.5; Banco Popular 3.2; Banco Mare Nostrum: 2.2

Winners:

  • *SANTANDER, BBVA, CAIXABANK, KUTXA PASS STRESS TEST      :SAN SM
  • *SABADELL, BANKINTER, UNICAJA PASS STRESS TEST  :SAN SM, BBVA SM

Losers, aka nationalized banks:

  • *NCG BANCO STRESS TEST SHORTFALL AFTER TAX EFFECT EU7.18 BLN
  • *IBERCAJA, CAJA3, LIBERBANK STRESS TEST SHORTFALL IS EU2.1 BLN
  • *BANCO DE VALENCIA STRESS TEST SHORTFALL IS EU3.5 BLN    :SAN SM
  • *BANKIA STRESS TEST SHORTFALL AFTER TAX EFFECT IS EU24.74 BLN

The discrete needs of the shortfall banks are as follows:

Bankia: 24.7;

Catalunya Caixa:10.8;

Novagalicia 7.2;

Banco de Valencia: 3.5;

Banco Popular 3.2;

Banco Mare Nostrum: 2.2

 

Based on these stunning assumptions!!!!

Bwuahahahah!!!!

  • IBEX: -0.4% next year? -5% worst case?
  • Home Prices: -2.8% next year? -4.5% worst case!!!!
  • Unemployment: 23.5% in 2013 - worst case 26.8%!!!!!
  • EURUSD: 1.33?

Finally, here is why all of the numbers above are absolutely meaningless. As a reminder in August, the ECB provided Spanish banks with €412 billion in funding. That is 7 times as much as the adverse case liquidity needs.

In other words, the total ECB funding and liquidity needs from the Stress Test is €472 billion. This is 50% of Spanish GDP.

Bottom line: the entire Spanish banking system is broke.

I see Potter found the buy button on his keyboard.

Someone should inform Potter that he accidently bought BYFC instead of RICK

Stackers's picture

So "passed stress trest" means SANTANDER, BBVA, CAIXABANK, KUTXA are all going to be nationalized in 3-4 weeks ?

I don't think I'm alone in saying that the Spiderman towel promotion just isn't cutting it. This is going to take something big, u know something faster than a speeding bullet, something more powerful than a locomotive. That's right,this is going to take a Superman Towel Promtion!

...and plenty of Spaniards have found the 'withdraw' button on theirs.

FL_Conservative's picture

So what's the over/under on the half-life of this report?

slaughterer's picture

Santander passed?  This is as bad as that touchdown call from that NFL ref from BAC!

Comay Mierda's picture

but they have plenty of good assets on their balance sheet.  spiderman towels have good resale value

So this was the "pre nov 7th" stress test, and then we see the "post nov 7th" shortly!!! Let's just say, they won't be the same!!!

It's pretty much common knowledge, after idiot Mitty went to Europe before the Olympics and made a giant ass of himself in from of the EU heads of state, that they are in the bag for Obama!!! Don't expect any trouble from them before 11/7!!!

But Israel is another matter, I think they are backed into a bad situation, and they see the next 30 days as the only window for attacking Iran!!! Of Obama re-elected they know it's over for them, so it's win win now!! If they attack and all hell breaks loose, and Obama loses because of it, it's a win! If they attack and Obama wins, we are already drawn into the fight, and obama will have to keep fighting or look weak!!
If they wait, and Romney wins, they attack, but the odds of that without an October surprise are low!! A serious catch 22!!!!

My bet is they attack!!

Urban Redneck's picture

Since when does Obama have problem looking weak?  

His PR muppets will simply fill the idiot boxes and internet tubes with propaganda explaining to the sheeple, what they are supposed to think...

Beer from 5 minutes ago or beer from last night?  There IS a difference.

Mercury's picture

For his family's sake I hope that guy doesn't have 'Ministerio de Economía' on his licence plates.

Dr. Engali's picture

That's good, but do they have plenty of Spiderman towels? Maybe Ben should print some up.

Aguadulce's picture

In Spain, Ben is known as Don QExote.

See those people on that panel? Until they have to go dumpster-diving to feed their kids, nothing will change.

GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR EUR/USD

Vincent Vega's picture

I'm suprised to see them use the term "shortfall". Shouldn't that be "inverse capital?"

Racer's picture

Just another term for one bank is morer busteder than the others

PUD's picture

The banks that passed have the best dumpsters to forage from..just sayin

LawsofPhysics's picture

We have confirmed that we have no money, see we can tell the truth, now please pay us our bonuses.

GrinandBearit's picture

Of course.  Gotta get those stock markets back up some how -lol

HD's picture

Where's Maria to screech, "Off the lows"?

Watch them take this green. When nothing matters apparently nothing matters.

Dr. Engali's picture

We should probably ask the bankers for guidance on how we fix this problem.

HD's picture

 Not until it shaves its armpits. I have standards.

No Euros please we're British's picture

Why does everyone knock the Germans like this. remember Germany is not Brazil.

Parrotile's picture

True! Better beaches, better climate, better "scenery" . . . . .

Racer's picture

Ha ha ha ha

Haa ha ha ha

Oh please my sides are splitting

stormsailor's picture

oh nooze,  the euro isn't as valuable as the dollar, so we need to pump another trillion el quicko.  racing to the bottom is fun, and profitable

Wow - what a shock! Now back to the stress tests that matter - Apple maps. Apple goes down, we all go down.

More garbage excuses for the US market to rally when the economic indicators of the past two days should have S&P off 40 points for a start. Fuck does this get tiresome. Who is the marginal buyer with this economic picture and the US market at long-term highs? Unfathomable. Companies may be cash-rich, which ony reduces return on equity with stalling earnings, and thus reduces P/E, in a normal market.

spastic_colon's picture

unless you use that extra cash to buy back shares to improve EPS of course

Bear's picture

The news is terrible, in Europe, in US growth and manufacturing, in politics, in life ... must be time for that Friday Rally

TrustWho's picture

Did the Algos write the Spainish press release?

TrustWho's picture

Exactly the point, Daddy Bernanke or PPT program the algos to respond to the robot written press release. Every key word that pumps the S&P are maximized in the press release.

russwinter's picture

Spanish bank stress out. Question now is, what is the half life of a lie in terms of a market rally? Time to fade lies?

NewWorldOrange's picture

I guess the ECB needs to inject $60 billion into the Spanish banks then (so the Spaniards can keep up the bank run.) Wait...if they inject the $60 bil, then the Spaniards will be reassured about the health of the banks and end their bank run.
