18:04 EDTC, HSBC, RBS, SAN, ZIONFed objects to capital plans of Citigroup, four others
Citigroup (C) and four other banks had their capital plans rejected by the Federal Reserve. The capital plans of the North American units of three international banks, HSBC (HSBC) of Britain, Santander (SAN) of Spain, and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), were rejected along with Zions Bancorporation (ZION), as the firm did not meet the minimum, post-stress tier-1 common ratio of 5%. WHAT'S NEW: Twenty five of the thirty banks that underwent the Federal Reserve stress test passed. The Federal Reserve objected to the plans of Citigroup, HSBC, Santander, and Royal Bank of Scotland based on qualitative concerns, while rejecting Zions' plan because it did not meet a minimum post-stress capital requirement. Passing the stress test is critical for the banks to get approval for dividend raises and increased share repurchase plans. CITIGROUP: The Fed noted that Citigroup has made progress in improving general risk management and control over the pasty several years but added "its 2014 capital plan reflected a number of deficiencies in its capital planning practices, including in some areas that had been previously identified by supervisors as requiring attention." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Citigroup traded down almost 6% in the after-hours to $47.30, Banco Santander was lower by almost 1% to $9.08, HSBC Holdings was up fractionally to $50.57, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group was down 0.6% to $9.94 and Zions was unchanged at $30.20.

06:39 EDTSAN, HSBC, RBSEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
