14:37 EDTCHK, WFC, BAC, KKD, AXP, JPM, MS, DFS, EOG, GS, C, ULTA, COFStocks set to end week higher as data helps lift shares
Stronger than expected U.S. economic data have left the market poised for yet another weekly advance...

However, an index of consumer sentiment for March was meaningfully below economists' consensus estimate... Economic data out of China, meanwhile, was somewhat weak, as the country reported that its industrial production rose 9.9% in January and February, the smallest advance since October 2012... COMPANY NEWS: The Fed approved the capital allocation plans of most of the nation's largest banks, including Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Morgan Stanley (MS) and Wells Fargo (WFC). The Fed did not object to the substance of capital plans submitted by Goldman Sachs (GS) and JPMorgan (JPM), but required those two institutions to submit new plans to address "weaknesses in their capital planning processes." The central bank also approved capital plans submitted by American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF) and Discover Financial (DFS)... Most natural gas stocks advanced significantly this week as the price of the commodity rose...

06:30 EDTCOF, DFS, AXPCapital One remains top card issuer pick at Citigroup
In its preview of Q1 results, Citigroup says Capital One (COF) remains its top pick among the card issuers given the company's "strong" card loan growth, capital return and "reasonable" valuation. Citi keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $95 price target. The firm continues to see a "modestly" improving U.S. consumer, and also has Buy ratings on American Express (AXP), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA), Synchrony Financial (SYF) and Visa (V). Citi thinks investor sentiment has become more negative for card issuers around provisioning for loan growth with the group posting mixed stock performance thus far in 2015.

07:16 EDTBAC, AXP, CRising competition may make AmEx targets hard to achieve, WSJ says
Though American Express recently reaffirmed its long-term targets for growing revenue 8% per year or better and earnings per share by 12%-15% per year while increasing operating expenses by less than 3% per year, there are good reasons to be skeptical about its ability to hit those targets, according to The Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street" column. Competition from peer Visa (V) as well as big banks such as Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) may put pressure on AmEx’s margins and it is not safe to assume that the company will always fare as well on the Fed's stress tests as it just did, the report stated.
