TORONTO — Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce took a nearly $1-billion hit to its second-quarter profit as its provisions for credit losses soared due to the pandemic and the plunge in oil prices.The Toronto-based bank said Thursday that it earned $392 million or 83 cents per share for the quarter ended April 30, down from a profit of $1.35 billion or $2.95 per share in the same quarter last year.Analysts on average had expected an adjusted profit of $1.58 per share, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.Chief executive Victor Dodig warned analysts on a call that the conditions that created those decreases are unlikely to abate soon, but said the bank has the resources to cope with such troubles. "Economic headwinds are likely to be here for the near term," he said."While there are many unknowns related to the pandemic, its effect on the economy and the path to recovery, what is certain is our strong capital liquidity will allow us to withstand ongoing stress."That stress has so far amounted to the bank earning 94 cents per share on an adjusted basis, a drop from $2.97 per share during period last year.It has also pushed CIBC to put aside $1.41 billion in provisions for credit losses, up from $255 million a year ago, as the assisted more than 500,000 clients in the quarter who were facing financial hardships by granting them payment deferrals and reduced interest rates on credit cards.All of Canada's big banks have announced dramatic increases in their provisions for credit losses due to the pandemic.Barclays analyst John Aiken said in a note to investors that CIBC opted to take significant reserves up front and that should be viewed positively."However, given the lukewarm reception that Royal received when it took a similar strategy, we are not certain that the implications will be immediately rewarded by the market," he said. "However, with solid allowances and a strong capital ratio, the relative outlook for CIBC appears to have improved."The bank meanwhile found that "disruption creates opportunity," Dodig said.CIBC's digital traffic and e-transfers in the quarter jumped by almost 20 per cent, while digital banking sessions and digital transactions grew by 18.1 and 8.8 per cent respectively."We are continuing to invest for the long-term with an eye to our strengths in technology and innovation," Dodig said."We have already fast-tracked some of our investments in technology to support digital engagement as well as working remotely and we will continue to review other areas of our business."This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 28, 2020.Companies in this story: (TSX:CM)Tara Deschamps, The Canadian Press

(Bloomberg) -- Canadian inflation went negative for the first time since the 2009 recession after the coronavirus lockdown put the brakes on the world economy.Consumer prices dropped 0.2% in April from the same month a year earlier, Statistics Canada reported Wednesday from Ottawa. That’s down from a 0.9% annual rate in March and 2.2% in February.The report adds inflation to the list of economic indicators showing an historic impact from the coronavirus pandemic. Collapsing gasoline prices have pulled inflation lower over the past two months, but weak demand should keep it at extremely low levels for an extended period. That could even spur worries about deflation and keep pressure off the Bank of Canada to ease up on accommodation efforts any time soon.“With the economy likely still underperforming if and when further restrictions are lifted, there will be an underlying drag on inflation that central bankers will need to offset with additional monetary easing,” Royce Mendes, an economist at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, said in a note to investors.Gasoline prices continued to fall as demand remained low because of limited travel, business closures and a supply glut. In April, gasoline posted a 39.3% drop, marking the biggest year over year decline on record. Excluding gasoline, inflation rose 1.6% from the same period last year.Core inflation readings, which factor out volatile items like energy prices and are often seen as a better measure of underlying price pressure, declined to 1.8%, from 1.83% in the prior month, the lowest since January 2019.Consumers paid less for transportation, traveler accommodation, clothing and education but paid more for food and household cleaning products. Supply chain issues resulted in higher prices for beef and pork. The uptick in prices for household cleaning products and toilet paper is a result of increased demand.From March, prices fell 0.7%, matching the largest one-month drop since 2008. Excluding gasoline, inflation dipped 0.1% on the month.Statistics Canada also said it was unable to gather as much data as usual because in-person collection was suspended and some establishments were temporarily closed.(Updates with details throughout.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Canada’s financial system remains resilient even in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and moves to keep credit markets functioning have been largely effective, though risks remain, according to the Bank of Canada.The country’s largest banks remain well capitalized even in the most pessimistic scenario, though some smaller lenders may struggle, and many businesses, especially in the energy sector, face higher funding costs and potential downgrades, the central bank said Thursday in its annual Financial System Review.Canada entered the crisis with strong banks, the protection of a robust mortgage insurance system and an economy in a solid position, the central bank said. “With these strengths, as well as the aggressive government policy response to the pandemic, the largest banks are in a good position to manage the consequences,” policy makers led by Governor Stephen Poloz said in the 39-page report that nevertheless outlines significant, across-the-board risks to the financial system.Small energy firms, lower-rated companies and some alternative lenders were singled out as potential flash points.It’s the central bank’s first comprehensive statement about the risks to Canada’s financial stability since the economy went into lockdown in mid-March. Since then, policy makers have expanded the bank’s balance sheet by about C$270 billion ($192 billion) in efforts to prevent credit markets from seizing up. Purchases of assets including government bonds, bankers acceptances and commercial paper have been successful and in many cases uptake has declined, the central bank said.Policy ResponseThe bottom line from the central bank is things would have been much worse without the massive monetary and fiscal response. Yet even with that response, the fallout from the economic shutdown will be worse than the 2008-2009 crisis, policy makers said, and the longer the crisis lasts, the worse things could become for households and businesses.“Overall, the Bank of Canada still sees the financial system as resilient. But the longer the economy remains tamped down, or if there are second waves of the virus once restrictions are eased, there could be further strains that require policy makers to take even more aggressive action,” wrote CIBC economist Royce Mendes in a note.Running the more pessimistic scenario from the April 15 Monetary Policy Report, which assumes a second-quarter economic contraction of 30%, the bank finds policy actions combined with payment deferrals limit the rise in mortgage arrears, with the rate of around 0.8% in the second half of 2021. That’s still almost double the peak rate in 2009.Since the Covid-19 shock, higher-risk Canadian firms are finding it difficult to tap U.S. leveraged loan markets, and some alternative lenders have suspended redemptions to cope with liquidity pressures. In addition, other small independent lenders which normally finance small firms “have reported challenging market conditions that, if persistent, could jeopardize the future of their business.”Alternative lenders, such as mortgage investment corporations, have become increasingly important for the provision of credit to households and small businesses, and now account for 1.5% of residential mortgage lending nationally.Households VulnerableThe bank acknowledges that many Canadian households face financial difficulty as jobs have been lost due to Covid-19. A significant share of the labor force is unemployed or underutilized and that will “continue for an unknown period.”The weakness in the labor market, along with physical distancing, have led to a decrease in housing activity. Both housing sales and listings are down sharply. Households may feel even more financially burdened if they are having difficult selling their homes. Most Canadian households see prices declining over the next six to 12 months.Highly indebted households will have a hard time managing income losses from lost employment. About 20% of all mortgage borrowers do not have enough liquid assets to cover two months of mortgage payments.Poloz downplayed concerns the central bank’s role in financing government spending could lead to a loss of its independence. “This government has been unwavering in its commitment to central bank independence throughout this,” Poloz said during a press teleconference in Ottawa. “We’ve behaved in ways which have been completely consistent with our inflation target. The key anchor to all that is the inflation target.”The governor, who steps down next month, cited the adage that central banks have the power to lend, while governments have the power to spend. “That distinction is crucial, and for us, the business of lending really only really has its power when people have confidence in the inflation target and therefore the independence of the central bank,” he said.“The objective is, in the first instance, market functioning. That’s crucial, because the monetary policy actions we’ve taken won’t go anywhere if financial markets were to stay gummed up as they were in early March.”(Updates with economist quote in eighth paragraph, Poloz comments in bottom three.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
