Morgan Stanley analysts focus on last quarter’s results and explain that “BBVA has published earnings which beat expectations (€1.341 vs €1.043 expected by the consensus) however under the surface things change. While NII came out 6% higher than expected, it was exclusively thanks to Turkey and Argentina, costs increased in all regions, and most importantly, capital came out 45bps lower than expected (CET1 12.75% vs 13.2% expected by the consensus) mainly due to an increase in risk-weighted assets. In addition, it has announced a dividend payment of €0.23/share (the highest cash dividend in a decade)”.
