    • When the going gets tough, the tough suspend trading. Portugal has halted trade in Banco Espirito Santo with the stock off 17.2% on the session and 54% over the last month. At issue are financial troubles for the bank's privately-owned holding company, Espirito Santo International. Its accounts are currently under review by an external auditor who has identified irregularities and concluded the company "is in serious financial condition."

    • "The sale of Wilbur Ross’s remaining stake in Bank of Ireland (IRE), giving up the board seat which he held for just under three years, reinforces our view that there remains little in the way of incremental positive catalysts on the horizon," says Nomura. “Further overhang remains with over 60% of the shares in the hands of the top 10 investors, although most are in it for the long haul.”
    • Down nearly 4% in early action, Bank of Ireland is now off 2.5% in London action. The ADRs fell 2.1% in New York trade yesterday following the news.

    • Wilbur Ross and Fairfax Financial (FRFHF) paid about €0.10 per share when they acquired about an 18% stake in Bank of Ireland (IRE -6.6%) in 2011 to help prevent the lender's nationalization. Not unexpected given strong demand for the stock, today's sale whittles their holdings down to about 12%. The two have more than tripled their money with the investment.
    • The Irish government continues to hold a 14% stake in the bank and there will no doubt be heightened interest in an offering of these shares.

    • Talked about for some time now, Bank of Ireland (IRE -2.6%) today moved forward with a €580M equity raise to help fund the redemption of some of the government's preferred stake in the rescued lender. The move allows the bank to sidestep a 25% increase in the amount owed on the preferred stake had it not been redeemed by the end of March.
    • Ireland itself is hoping to exit its own bailout on December 15 and the successful share sale should help bolster that plan.

    • "Reflect(ing) our belief that Bank of Ireland (IRE) is making steady progress to return to profitability on an ongoing basis, and that its funding and liquidity profiles are normalizing," S&P affirms its BB+/B rating on the lender.
    • Notable, says S&P, is the bank's boosted net interest margin (thanks to lower funding costs) which should lead to significantly higher net interest income this year and higher still in 2014.
    • Earlier this week, the bank hinted it may sell common stock to help repay €1.8B of state-owned preferred shares. The cost of redeeming these shares is set to jump by 25%, or €450M in March under the terms of its bailout agreement.
    • The stock is ahead by 2.7% In the premarket.

    • Bank of Ireland (IRE -5.3%) is an outlier, tumbling as the rest of Europe and the European banking sector (EUFN +1.4%) in particular put in a strong performance. Maybe moving the shares is SocGen initiating the red-hot stock with a Sell rating.
    • IRE's more than a double over the last year.
