Bank shares restore under recent industry bailouts
This paper structures ten effective implications/lessons of the most recent bank bailouts of 2007-2009 in the Western economy model when analysing actual shareholders' value retrenchment or growth opportunities. The author finds that recent bank bailouts relate to: global bailout interconnections, economic downturn and liquidity boost, abnormal returns, efficiency recovery, evade social costs, new opportunities for M&A, new risk management applications, opportunistic investors and eventually patience. The novelty of the paper resides not in calculating ratios and interpreting them, but rather to looking more into some interesting strategic moves used to boost shareholders' value. We recommend shareholders to grasp opportunities for bargains from bailout banks, get more knowledge about the issue and still harvest their existing investments. Eventually, we advise the management of both government and financial institutions on the choice for reasoning bank bailouts, providing some critical thinking views and raise important research questions to both investors and academics.
