06:58 EDTCFed official supports tougher bank stress tests, Reuters reports
Boston Fed president Eric Rosengren said that he supports tougher stress tests for "too big to fail" banks, including larger capital investments that would make them "even more binding," Reuters reports. Rosengren said that stress test changes have reduced the likelihood that systemically important financial firms would fail, the report says. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
06:51 EDTCBofA 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

07:31 EDTCBank, financial stocks look cheap, says Oppenheimer
After an index of bank stocks fell 19% since last summer, versus an 8% decline for the S&P, Oppenheimer says that "the group looks cheap." The firm says that banks' balance sheets will remain strong whether the economy is resilient or enters a downturn.

Oppenheimer continues to recommend Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Discover (DFS), and Fifth Third (FITB)
