The central bank also approved capital plans submitted by American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF) and Discover Financial (DFS)...

UBS analyst William Featherston downgraded Chesapeake Energy (CHK) to Sell after his firm cut its long-term normalized natural gas price forecast to $4.00 from $4.50.

06:37 EDTC, BAC, JPM, GSDeutsche downgrades Citi, Goldman after share rallies
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor recommends using the strong share performance of both Citi (C) and Goldman Sachs (GS) as on opportunity to take profits. The analyst this morning downgraded shares of both investment banks to Hold from Buy. Citi is up 21% from the lows on January 30 while Goldman is up 30% since July 1, 2014, the analyst points out. On Citi, O'Connor sees less near term upside with fixed income trading entering a seasonally weak period and core cost reductions largely over. On Goldman, the analyst sees a lack of catalysts to drive the stock meaningfully higher in the near term. His top picks among U.S. Banks are Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan (JPM), M&T Bank (MTB) and SunTrust (STI).
