06:39 EDTSANEuropean 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).

09:00 EDTGNCGNC Holdings estimates cut 'well below' consensus at William Blair
William Blair lowered its estimates for GNC Holdings "well below" the current consensus after taking down its 2014 earnings estimate by 5c to $2.65 and 2015 estimate by 10c to $2.90. The firm finds it "tough to identify" any improvement in operating trends during Q3, and feels the departure of four key executives in the last three months suggests "deeper fundamental issues" for the company. William Blair lists large overlap in product assortment with Amazon (AMZN) and buy-one-get-one promotional activity continuing in Q3 as reasons for concern. The firm reiterates an Underperform rating on GNC and notes the stock is up nearly 20% since the Q2 release.
