18:04 EDTZION, HSBC, SAN, C, RBSFed 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.
