Thursday preview: Global services, Paragon Banking Group in focus

By Alexander Bueso

Date: Wednesday 02 Dec 2020

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Investors will be focused on a raft of survey results for the global services sector on Thursday.


Both in the UK, but especially in the euro area, economists' forecasts are calling for final readings to be unchanged from the preliminary ones published roughly two weeks before and to remain consistent with a substantial slowdown in activity levels.

Stateside on the other hand, the Institute for Supply Management's survey for the sector was expected to hold near the previous month's level, at 56.0, which was indicative of a still rapid pace of growth.

The latest batch of weekly US jobless claims figures would also be closely scrutinised for any further signs of weakness in hiring.

Towards noon, the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its main allies are expected to announce whether or not they intended to extend their curbs on crude oil supplies into 2021.



On the corporate side of things, and for Paragon Banking Group's full-year numbers, UBS's Jason Napier has penciled-in a drop in the lender's underlying profits before tax from 116m in 2019 to 59m.

However, other operating income was expected to drop by 12% due to the ongoing drag from estimated credit losses (ECLs).

The lender's common equity Tier one capital ratio on the other hand strengthened from 14.4% at the end of the first half to 14.8%, he predicted.

In parallel, Paragon's net interest margin was pegged to come in at 2.27% for the year ended in September and at 2.21% for the second half.

"Updates on credit spreads, deposit/funding costs, forbearance and asset quality movement are key areas to watch for," Napier added.
