Banking Survey Shows Losses On Commercial Loans Rising NEW YORK (AP) -- The groans of an economy straining against its limitations are being heard now from almost every direction. The latest report of tension comes from the banking industry, where a survey shows that losses on commercial loans rose 24 per cent last year to an nvera'ge of 526 Tor each $10,000 of business. The average in 1972 was S21. The survey, by Robert Morris ..Associates, made up of bank loan and credit officers, shows that total write-offs by the 47:1 banks surveyed amounted to $374 million. The banks involved in the study represent .about 6S per cent of commercial bank loans. This survey report follows . one by Business Week maga- . zine that supgcsts many utilities are feeling the strain too. and are frying to cover it over from investors by paying out more in dividends than they v are earning. Of 21 utilities studied, it said, .-.actual profits fell short of div- dends by J340.3 million. Â· Earlier signs of deteriorating credit conditions have appeared in stock market 'margin, installment loans and home mortgages. In April, the New York Stock Exchange announcer!, "The nivilily or security credit deteriorated noticeably." Margin debit in accounts under 'Id per cent equity rose to SI.98 billion. And the percentage of such accounts rose to 16 per cent from \'i per cent of all margined portfolios in the previous month. This was the fourth straight monthly rise of security debt, bringing to S5.4 billion the amount of borrowed money supporting stock prices, many of which, nevertheless, remain badly depressed. Margin in the stock market is like a down payment in the automobile or housing markets. At the moment, it takes 50 per cent down to become a margin customer of a broker, who lends the buyer the remaining funds. When the value of Ihose ares falls, however, the broker invariably asks the buyer to pul up more margin. The effect of higfi borrowing rates, therefore, is compounded by falling prices. The delinquency ralio. or tiic proportion of repayments that are at least 30 flays overdue, continues hrdi in the stallment loan category.
