Bank Watch October 2015

The October 2015 issue of Bank Watch is available now, which features the article “Recent Trends in Agricultural Production Lending” written by Laura J. Stevens, CFA.

Although farm income is projected to decline for a second consecutive year in 2015, farmers and the broader agricultural industry have had a great run since the Great Recession. The agricultural lending industry? Not so much.

In this article, we consider industry trends such as growing demand for financing and steady rates, while also accounting for alternative sources of lending and implications on asset quality.

This issue also contains the article “Fairness Opinions and Down Markets” as well as links to various articles of interest, public market indicators, M&A market indicators, and key indices of the top financial institutions in the U.S., providing insight into financial institution valuation issues.
