This Bank Might Collapse Next

The future of PacWest Bancorp (Nasdaq: PACW) might be uncertain, a report claims, sending shares of the bank down 52.49% in after-hours trading on Wednesday.

Details: According to a Bloomberg report, PacWest is teetering and weighing several strategic options, including a sale. No formal auction process has started, but the bank is working with a financial adviser. PacWest did not comment on the report.

Background: Several other regional banks have collapsed in recent months, sending shockwaves throughout the industry. The most recent collapse was earlier this week.

Final Thoughts: Before Thursday’s report, PacWest was already down 71% in 2023. It’s a bad time for investors in regional banks.
