Loans under stress...capital raising....dividend cut. Could it be the first sign of bigger things to come? Check out this article from August. https://www.smh.com.au/business/ban...se-amid-housing-weakness-20190819-p52ijf.html You will find reference to a couple of analysts that are blinded. They didn't think to investigate further to determine if the overall financial position of Westpac would effect the dividend....WRONG. A cut in dividend and a dilution of the stock. It is the job of these analysts to analyse risk. Perhaps if they had of done there job properly instead of shmoozing up to 'Leaders of Industry" they would have kept ahead of the ball instead of dropping it.
