    • Earnings and cost efficiencies

      DB profit before tax of € 3.3bn after absorbing over € 700m in non operating expenses such as restructuring for operational efficiencies.

      "Higher nonoperating costs in H1 2023 with € 0.5bn of litigation expenses to resolve mainly longstanding matters and € 0.3bn restructuring & severance to accelerate strategy"

      Earnings per share was €0.63 in Q1 which at share price €10 gives a P/E ~4. DB has a cost efficiency program running and aim at keeping cost fixed while increasing revenue, thus improving C/I ratio. As I see it DB is and will continue to be extremely profitable i.e. cheap at current market cap.

  • Risks (1)
    • Only the normal low risks in EU banking

      The risks seem to be reasonable, and considering previous problems from 2008 the risk appetite is low.

      The market was worried based on US issues, but I don't see that there will be any material effect on DB's business.
