Quick takes from around the market

Quick takes from around the market

BDO [BDO 133.00 1.48%] [link] board formally approves use of the “CLI Maneuver” to fund the raise of its authorized capital stock (ACS) through the use of stock dividends. BDO will declare a 20% stock dividend, which will “pay” for the P3 billion ACS increase. This is a quick and cash-free way for a company to raise its ACS, provided it has the retained earnings to do it (and BDO does).
 

Union Bank [UBP 81.30 0.91%] [link] Q1 net income slumped 45% y/y, but surged 39% q/q to P2.6 billion. UBP noted that its recurring income grew 21%, and net interest income grew 12%, but that it underperformed Q1/21 because of the high-bar of Q1/21’s “extraordinary” trading gains.
 

BDO [BDO 133.00 1.48%] [link] Q4 net income up 13% y/y, expanded 13% q/q, to P11.7 billion. Like UBP, BDO’s underlying basic bank metrics have shown continued improvement coming out of the pandemic.
