Earnings kick off this week with Financials posting an early first round of results. In a lower interest rate environment, we’re conscious that some banks may be feeling the squeeze on net interest margins. To baseline analyst and investor expectations, we used Amenity’s NLP tools to examine margin-related commentary from the last round of earnings calls for each of the Financials reporting this week.
We summarize the data and findings for our readers below in Figure 1, which details and ranks each firm’s net polarity related to margin commentary in the last round of earnings calls. We hope this is a useful spatial awareness tool going into the first week of earnings and believe it should, at least partly, constructively condition expectations around the names for which we detected polar sentiment on margin topics.
For reference, we provide some illustrative commentary from previous calls for the top three banks in each column in Figure 1 below:
As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
