Shares of Deutsche Bank (DB ) rose as much as 5% Friday morning after a German magazine reported that JPMorgan (JPM ) , along with Industrial and Commercial Bank of China may take a stake in the troubled bank. However, a JPM spokesperson quickly spoke out and denied the report, removing some of the gains on the stock but still leaving it green on the day.
A Turbulent Stretch
DB has been underperforming in recent years, down nearly 40% in the last twelve months alone compared to a 3.4% increase across the financial services industry, shown here:
Last week, its US subsidiary was the only major bank to fail the second part of the Federal Reserve’s annual stress tests due to “widespread and critical deficiencies” in its capital planning controls.
The bank has been hurt by the sluggish growth of the European economy and lowered (and even negative) interest rates, which have been eating into its margins. In response to difficult operating conditions, DB has begun restructuring, announcing in May that it would axe 7,000 investment banking jobs and lay off 25% its equities sales and trading workforce. Doing so will reduce its investment bank’s leverage exposure by 10% overall, or over $117 billion.
