20:32 EDTJPM, WFC, BACMajor U.S. banks facilitating state-banned 'payday' loans, NYT says
Major U.S. banks are quickly becoming the facilitators of Internet-based payday lenders like Loanshoponline.com and Advancemetoday.com that offer short-term loans with extremely high interest rates. JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Bank of America (BAC) and Wells Fargo (WFC) do not make the loans but are a necessary link for the internet-based "payday" lenders, says the New York Times, "enabling the lenders to withdraw payments automatically from borrowers’ bank accounts, even in states where the loans are banned entirely. In some cases, the banks allow lenders to tap checking accounts even after the customers have begged them to stop the withdrawals," says the New York Times. Reference Link

06:35 EDTWFCGE releases financial details of GE Capital assets sale
Approximately $16B of after-tax charges are expected to be recorded in the first quarter of 2015 in connection with the plan – of which about $12B are non-cash. The charges include taxes on repatriated earnings, asset impairments due to shortened hold periods, and charges on businesses held for sale, including goodwill allocation. GE expects that the earnings impact of the GE Capital exits will be offset by the buyback over the exit period. GE has amended its income maintenance agreement to guarantee all tradable senior and subordinated debt securities and all commercial paper issued or guaranteed by GECC. The guarantee will replace the current income maintenance covenant. GE will maintain substantial liquidity and capital through the transition and does not expect to issue incremental GE Capital long-term debt for at least five years. Commercial paper will be further reduced to approximately $5 billion by the end of 2015.

07:16 EDTBACRising 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 AmEx’s 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.
