Financials Down As European Bank Earnings Remain Weak -- Financials Roundup

Shares of banks and other lenders and money managers fell as European bank earnings continued to come in weak.

Lloyds Banking Group shares fell after the largest British retail bank posted a pretax loss for the first half of 2020, blindsiding analysts who follow its fortunes. Asia-focused British bank Standard Chartered said second-quarter pretax underlying profit fell 40%, as credit impairments continued to surge amid the prolonged pandemic.

Shares of Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse Group fell after it posted second-quarter operating earnings shy of some investors' expectations, and said it would create a global investment bank.

Mastercard shares were flat after the U.S. credit-card processor's second-quarter revenue plunged, as anticipated.

Intercontinental Exchange shares were flat after the parent of the New York Stock Exchange said its profit and sales rose for the second quarter, lifted by the flurry of trading activity during the pandemic-inspired stock-market selloff and recovery.
