My corporate RNS wooden spoon award today goes to challenger bank Metro Bank (MTRO), whose shares are currently down over 25% which - at face value - does appear a tad surprising given today's full year update shows loans up 48% year-on-year and underlying profit before tax to be up 138%. However...this latter statistic was below hopes and was impacted by a 'softening' in the last quarter due to high levels of mortgage market competition. Well oops...but down 25% oops?
