06:51 EDTPNCBofA doesn't deserve to be in 'stock market doghouse,' WSJ says
Bank of America (BAC) is currently in the "stock market doghouse," but doesn't deserve to be, David Reilly of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape says. The overall beating of U.S. bank stocks has come amid the greater market selloff, reflecting the fact that slowing growth has brought doubt on the Fed's ability to raise rates in March, Reilly says. Since a rate increase is a far-off prospect, investors have little reason to own bank stocks, though Bank of America's valuation assumes "too dire an outcome," the report says. Banks with international outreach, such as Citi (C), are still arguably further behind in post-crisis cleanup, but Bank of America is more focused on the domestic U.S. economy and prices a U.S. recession as a given, not a possibility, the report says. Other large U.S. banks include Wells Fargo (WFC), JPMorgan (JPM), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB), BB&T (BBT), PNC Financial (PNC), and SunTrust (STI). Reference Link
06:45 EDTCSCredit Suisse 'accelerating the pace at which we are restructuring'
Credit Suisse says "Given the losses sustained in 2015 and continued uncertainties in our environment, we have been accelerating the pace at which we are restructuring the bank. We have initiated this acceleration and it is resulting in a reduction in workforce of approximately 4,000 positions. Combined with the measures already implemented in 4Q15, the cost savings identified and initiated by end-January will be CHF 1.2 billion per annum, representing 34% of the announced 2018 cost savings target of CHF 3.5 billion. In addition to the cost reduction program, we are continuously looking for ways to lower our break-even point... The restructuring of GM activities is also continuing as we further reduce fixed income legacy positions and make the franchise less vulnerable to negative developments in the credit markets."
