Big Short Michael Burry is Buying Distressed Bank Stocks

The implosion of some of the popular regional banks in the United States earlier in the first quarter was bad news for many investors, however, for “Big Short” investor Michael Burry, the calamity appears to be good news. 

According to an update shared by Benzinga citing data from the latest filing made by Scion Capital, Burry has been acquiring the shares of most distressed banks including First Republic Bank, PacWest Bancorp, Western Alliance Bank and New York Community Bancorp amongst others.

The shares acquisition is very strategic as these banks are currently trading at some of their worst levels since they came into existence with many at the brink of a bank run. The crisis that was precipitated by Silicon Valley Bank as well as the run on Signature Bank has triggered a general Fear Uncertainty and Doubt among investors in the US regional banking sector.

In the last interest rate hike announcement from the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, the claim that the US banking sector is healthy was made, despite the apparent valuation slump for most of the top rated entities in the space. For survival, most of these banks depend on outright acquisition or huge individual investments by investors like Michael Burry.
