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.

07:16 EDTCRising 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 AmExís 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.
