Net interest increased by 2.3 percent compared to the second quarter of 2014, while noninterest income was 1.9 percent higher. Servicing income increased 63.9 percent and trading income fell 14.1 percent.The report also noted that community bank earnings increased 12 percent from a year earlier to $5.3 billion. Net operating revenue also rose 8.0 percent from a year ago to $22.3 billion at community banks.Source: FDICMore than half of the FDIC’s 6,348 insured institutions reported year-over-year growth in quarterly earnings, while the portion of banks that experienced no profit fell from 6.8 percent last year to 5.6 percent, the lowest since the first quarter of 2005.”On balance, the industry—and community banks in particular—experienced another positive quarter.”The FDIC reported that loan growth within banks remained steady in the second quarter with total loan and lease balances rising $185 billion. Over the last year ending June 30, loans and leases increased $437.8 billion. At community banks, loan balances rose 2.7 percent during the second quarter of 2015 and increased 8.8 percent during the past 12 months.However, net interest margins faced some heavy pressures, with the average net interest margin rising to 3.06 percent in the second quarter from 3.02 percent in the first quarter. Average margins at community banks were 3.57 percent in the second quarter, up from 3.54 percent in the first quarter.“Lending grew strongly in nearly every category, with a total increase exceeding $430 billion over the last year. Business loans were up more than $137 billion year over year and real estate lending has picked up steam,” said James Chessen, ABA chief economist. “With the economy growing stronger and higher interest rates on the horizon, many businesses have determined that there’s no time like the present to borrow and kick expansion plans into high gear. Even with Fed action, interest rates will remain incredibly low by historic standards. We expect borrowing to remain elevated in the third quarter amid low interest rates, improving confidence and a stable economy.”Gruenberg also pointed out that low interest rates continue to present challenges to banks, causing banks to acquire higher-yielding, longer-term assets, which has left banks more vulnerable to rising interest rates.”The industry experienced a continuation of positive trends observed over recent quarters,” Gruenberg said. “However, the banking industry continues to face challenges. Revenue growth has lagged behind asset growth, as exceptionally low interest rates put downward pressure on net interest margins. On balance, the industry—and community banks in particular—experienced another positive quarter.”Click here to view the FDIC’s Second Quarter Quarterly Banking Profile. center_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

President Trump Weighs in on Hurricane Maria’s Impact on Puerto Rico

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / President Trump Weighs in on Hurricane Maria’s Impact on Puerto Rico On Thursday, President Trump denied the recently reported heavy fatalities from Hurricane Maria, in Puerto Rico. In a tweet, the President said, “3,000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the island AFTER the storm had hit they had anywhere from six to 18 deaths.”Rejecting the findings of the independent study that was commissioned by Puerto Rico’s Gov. Ricardo Rossello following public pressure to more accurately determine the number of fatalities following the hurricane, President Trump said that the reported large numbers was done by the Democrats, “in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising billions of dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico.”The study was conducted by George Washington University’s Milken School of Public Health. In its findings that were published in August, Carlos Santos-Burgoa, Epidemiologist and the study’s Principal Investigator had said that the results of the study suggested that “tragically, Hurricane Maria led to a large number of excess deaths throughout the island.”The Category 5 hurricane also led to the loss of property and infrastructure. In late July, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development approved the disaster recovery plan to rebuild Puerto Rico’s housing and infrastructure. Of the $1.5 billion that was approved, $1 billion will go towards restoring the island’s severely damaged housing stock. As part of the plan, Puerto Rico intends to provide up to $120,000 to rebuild destroyed homes for each qualified homeowner and up to $48,000 to repair each eligible damaged property. Additional housing investments include funding for rental assistance ($10,000,000), specifically for properties serving the elderly and other vulnerable households. Puerto Rico has also proposed a $36 million Home Emergency Resilience Program that provides up to $6,000 per household for individual solar appliances to help families.The latest debate over Hurricane Maria comes as Hurricane Florence starts its assault on the Carolinas with high winds. According to a report by NPR, the hurricane’s heavy rains and tropical storm-force winds reached North Carolina’s outer banks on Thursday morning. The two states are likely to bear the brunt of the huge storm surge expected from the storm that grew larger despite weakening a bit over the past 24 hours. The hurricane is likely to damage nearly 795,000 homes with a reconstruction cost value of $170.2 billion.On November 14-16, Five Star will host the PR18 Summit in San Juan, Puerto Rico to focus on rebuilding efforts and the current state of the island following Hurricane Maria. Housing industry executives from banks, servicers, and suppliers, as well as key stakeholders in the affected regions, local officials, and representatives from related governmental agencies will be in attendance to collaborate and discuss Puerto Rico’s affairs and brainstorm long-term solutions to the housing crisis on the island.Click below for more information and to register for this event.

House Meeting to Discuss LGBTQ Housing Discrimination ‘Long Overdue’

first_img House Meeting to Discuss LGBTQ Housing Discrimination ‘Long Overdue’ The House Committee on Financial Services held a hearing Tuesday on discrimination in housing and lending in the LGBTQ community. Congressman and Financial Services Committee member Al Green said Tuesday’s meeting was “long overdue.” “You are not alone. You have allies in the Congress in the United States of America,” Green said. Green said during his opening remarks that those in the LGBTQ community face economic insecurity, discrimination in housing, a lack of legal protection, and that the disrcimination on mortgage exists and is “proveable.” “Discrimination based on race, gender, or sexual orientation … is wrong and should not be tolerated anywhere, including in the mortgage and the consumer lending industries,” said Committee member Rep. Andy Barr. Rep. Maxine Waters, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, said the Trump administration has talked of stripping Federal regulations that guard against anti-LGBTQ discrimination in lending and housing. She added that in May 2019 the Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed changing its own rules to allow Federaly-funded homelss shelters top deny admission to transgender people based on gender identification. “It is unacceptable that this administration is using taxpayer dollars to put already vulnerable Americans at further risk,” Waters said. Testifying during the hearing were Harper Jean Tobin, Director of Policy, National Center for Transgender Equality; Michael Adams, CEO, Sage; Kerith Coonron, Research Director, Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law; Alphonso David, President, Human Rights Campaign; Hua Sun, Professor, Iowa State University; Francis Creighton, President and CEO, Consuer Data Industry Association. According to a House memo, a study by Prudential found that nearly half of LGBTQ respondents had household incomes below $50,000, while the median-household incomes for non-LGBTQ people was around $70,000.The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey revealed that 23% of transgender adults experienced some form of housing discrimination in the prior year. Also, 12% said they had been homeless with 6% saying they were denied housing. The memo added that researchers analyzed Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data from 1990-2015 and found same-sex mortgage co-applicants were 73.12% more likely to be denied a loan than different-sex applicants. During her testimony, Tobin said there are currently 2 million transgender people in America, but the homeownership rate was just one-fourth of the U.S. population. She added that one-in-four transgender people faced housing discrimination in the past year. Tobin also said one-in-four transgender people didn’t try to seek emergency shelter because of fear.  “For nearly 20 years, Federal Courts have overwhelmingly held that laws such as the Fair Housing Act and Equal Credit Opportunity Act, prohibit anit-transgender discrimination,” Tobin said. “Unfortunately, the Trump Justice Department has rejected the majority view of the reports and urged the Supreme Court to strip those protections away.”  Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Related Articles Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
