Will WAL be the next one? Or ZION?

Mentions:#WAL#ZION

Jump into bank puts guys. WAL ZION etc. NYCB is going to die.

If you're talking about NYCB puts specifically then FDIC taking over is max gain = the best outcome. The stock will open trading OTC after a few weeks of being halted. Then you just buy the shares for close to nothing and exercise your options. After all you can still trade the failed banks from last year for a few pennies and you can see what happened with stock in the chart. The tricky part would be getting caught with your expiration date while it's still halted. Then you'd need enough margin to exercise the puts into a short. Margin requirements could be based on the last traded price and could make the whole thing very pricey. Best to not get into such a situation and buy puts at least 2 months out. But since IV is shit on NYCB specifically I'd just go short any other regional bank. One from my list in the post or one of the regional banks that is very sensitive to a new bank panic like WAL, ZION etc.

WAL, looking shaky

Mentions:#WAL

Going to go out on a limb and guess one of the regional banks that have been unduly beaten down based on rumor and not fact. One of the larger Peer Group 2 or smaller Peer Group 1 banks with enough capital to absorb a real downturn that isn't heavily invested in CRE. CMA would make some sense but their AOCI is getting wrecked by their Treasury holdings and WAL's latest 10Q notes their FDIC-insured deposit rate is still low... though Warren giving an injection of funding would definitely help shore that up.

I'm bearish on WAL. Their risk profile seems less extreme and has been tapering since last March, but it's still risk-heavy based on the things cited last year and the screenshot you posted. I've been meaning to go through the FFIEC filings for some of these other banks, now that we're probably nearing the end of another bond rally... I think the key to playing puts on some of these banks is going to be finding a bank that is 1) highly leveraged, with 2) a very risky loan/asset portfolio - especially when weighted with CRE - which 3) either hasn't tapered off or has been covered over by brokered deposit/other short term high rate funding. VLY, for example, has tapered off their short term non core funding by ~50% since last year, while WAL has continued to rely on it.

>Invest in what you know! And what exactly do you know? seriously ask yourself that. I doubt you know anything about the banking sector or any sector. There were lots of other banks that would have made up for your loss in FRC if you were smart enough to spread your risk. PACW went to 3 then back to 10. WAL from 8 to 65+. ZION from 22 to 45. MCB from 25 to 55. CUBI from 15 to 60, and more others. Nobody knows anything. Not even the ratings agencies. All these analysts and experts only know how to look backwards and not forwards.

r/wallstreetbetsSee Comment

This ain't a liquidity crunch like March 2023 (yet) so no reason to close the bank. Asset quality issues are slow to develop and play out. Additionally, the Fed gave NYCB Signature Bank. You think the Fed wants to admit incompetence in deciding who to sell Signature to? Not a chance. Buy and stomach the volatility is the move here. Told y'all the same thing in March 2023 and I was lambasted as a loon...buying WAL at $8 and selling at $70 was a better return than the Mag7 over the same period.

I'd wait at least a week or two where you see an actual bottom develop. My anecdotal experience: I bought the initial dip on WAL last year during the "bank crisis" .. sure it has recovered now, but my initial investment went to half at one point cause I was too fast out of the gate buying during the early chop of bad news. This kind of thing attracts a lot of short term investor attention whose moves cause bizarre and outsized price fluctuations.

I think the difference is WAL is 9+ months after that banking crisis. So it is easier to go great company. Compared to talking about buying any stock down 30% in a day. I imagine if you go back to the banking crisis it wasn't the same favorable comments when WAL dropped from 70 to 7. No position in MPW just interesting seeing a stock at 2009 prices.

Mentions:#WAL#MPW
r/stocksSee Comment

It won't declare bankruptcy. Some of its tenants might, though. Dividend cut to 0 is far more likely. Many people are buying this stock just because it has a high dividend, which is a big mistake. WAL is different because it was in a much safer position than the other regional banks to begin with, and those who studied the company carefully realized it. Not guaranteeing the stock can't go up, but this is NOT a buy the dip opportunity.

Wfc dfs ally in 2020: Market thought they were at risk of insolvency. I knew that was far-fetched. Fears of 08 are still with the market. Hence my next big bet WAL in April/may: same as above. BS not as iron-strong as big banks but deposits actually started to grow in q2. Mgmt is phenomenal. Avg cost was $30. Also bought up key usb and tfc. Given where they’ve ran, I still like WAL, but tfc might be the most undervalued today. USB is a better business tho. I think the iRobot deal goes through so shares at $39 are a solid chunk below the $51 deal price. Some reits are cheap. Ah one more, I think the market is overdoing it on lithium. Long term demand still outpaces Supply by a moonshot. Long $alb. Smaller positions in SQM and LAAC

TLDR: I'm a spoiled child acting as if I should've made a lot of money. I need to rant in hopes that I can stop thinking about this, please shit on me. I've been suffering massive regret not making bank from the FOMC meeting last week. With how good the CPI and PPI have been recently, I've been planning on yoloing on those calls for such a long time. Luckily, I had yolo'd 30k worth of 0dte Spy Calls that day but I sold early literally because of the first bearish thing that came out of Powell mouth like 2 minutes into the hearing. I made like 20k that day but if I had just held onto them for the rest of the day, I would've made so much god damn more. I had it a lot better than many other people that day but yet I still **absolutely** hate myself for thinking this way. I hate how much of a pussy I am for selling so early and I've now been blindly taking gambles looking at graphs to try to make up my would be imaginary money that I would've made. I've fully stopped blindly gambling on random graphs for now. I plan on doing another yolo attempt on the next FOMC meeting if the CPI and PPI continue to look good. If it doesn't, then maybe the one after it. But this time, I'll likely be buying either regional bank calls like WAL or housing calls like Z. Unfortunately the next FOMC likely wont have as much of an impact on the market as the last one did. For context, I'm a software engineer in my late 20s that got laid off during the bank runs this March. I only have 1 year of experience in the field. I haven't been able to land another SWE job after that. I pussy yolo'd that day because I'm feeling cornered in my life. This would've been my ticket to being able to live the slow life. Fuck me.

The most likely outcome for stocks 12 months from now is positive returns. However, the risks are high. FFR is still above 5%, and the line between cooling inflation and crumbling economy is thin. The real questions are whether the risk and reward is balanced, and how much relative exposure to equities does that justify. Valuation measures which have accurately predicted 10 year returns have been flashing red for a few years now and the expected path is absolutely negative, and significantly underperforming t-bills. Timing this however, even in a 12 month horizon, is impossible. Yes the market is very expensive. But the most common “next step” for an expensive market is to become even more expensive. No one knows when or what will cause a reversal. Unlike market gains, which come like an escalator, marching up over time, market losses come like an elevator down - fast and swift. The median wall st 2024 target for the S&P is ~ 4900 per my observation. That’s about 7% higher than we are today. For my money, I’m holding funds like JAAA which pay me 7% with a fraction of the downside exposure of equities. I’ve also been holding some regional banks like KEY and WAL which have represented enormous asymmetric upside this year. They’ve carried my portfolio to a 25% gain Ytd despite my 65% allocation to safety. In my retirement accounts, I still hold the indexes, but it’s dialed down from my typical exposure. TLDR: The median outcome for 2924 is positive but the average outcome likely has asymmetric risk. The 5-10 year horizon is worrisome given very high valuations, and the risks of both persistent inflation and thus persistently higher rates, and an economic slowdown where we see both higher unemployment and an earnings recession.

Yup, there were a few gambles you could’ve taken during the banking crisis (for example, I “knife caught” WAL for a cool +100%, but the risks involved meant I didn’t put much into it, you don’t catch knives with your life savings), but past that, my investments are barely stable and I haven’t really felt good with any gambling prospects either. With that said, I’m glad this is the state the economy is in, cause the numbers I read tell me that things should be so much worse rn

Blanket statements like this never apply to all stocks / businesses. I averaged down western alliance bancorp (WAL)during the bank run earlier this year. Why? WAL is well capitalised, has little exposure to tech and is not at risk of going off the rails with upcoming commercial rental issues. I am now sitting on a tidy profit and still reinvesting their awesome dividends. Although agreed averaging down something like crypto investments is suicidal.

Banks already went back up. I’m hoping something shakes out in the ABS world that creates enough headline noise so that CVBF and WAL will be solid buys again.

I feel like buying options with 2 days expiration is too risky for me. Also, I still don't understand why some lines, like WAL/52/50 or SCHW/61/59 are both in Calls and Puts. Does this mean we should buy both a call and a put? Thanks

Anyone else look back at how this sub reacted during crisises and see how it turned out. I went back to March 2020, Dec 2022, and then the time of the banking crisis in 2023. It is interesing how much people were saying not to buy or how the stock discussion narrowed. To use the banking crisis/FUD from a couple months ago. Most of the discussion was around buying JPM, BAC, C, or WFC. Not many were talking about buying WAL at $8 or PACW at $3.

Idk if you remember but a while ago I was talking about my 5 picks for the FT stockpicking contest. I picked long Teck/WAL/META/BTU and short Siemens AG. In the end, that equal weighted portfolio would have been [up 24.6% versus the S&P 500 (Total Return) up 19.4%](https://i.imgur.com/yoQKo8M.png). I'm not including dividends from TECK/BTU/WAL or Siemens AG. Insane how WAL was once down 70% at some point and is now down a paltry 13%. Granted I got almost all of these calls wrong except TECK and then META carried the day.

That is impressive! WAL was pretty cheap going into this year, but still....the street left them for dead!

Even $WAL is only down about 15% YTD... pretty impressive given the insane selloffs in March & April.
