10:49 EDTGSGoldman Sachs Asia unit censured by Hong Kong regulator
The Securities and Futures Commission, SFC, has publicly censured Goldman Sachs Asia for breaches of the Code on Takeovers and Mergers whilst acting as a financial advisor to Wing Hang Bank, Limited in relation to a voluntary general offer for the bank. Goldman Sachs' conduct fell far short of the standards expected of a financial advisor under the Takeovers Code in that between 8 November 2013 and 6 January 2014: Goldman Sachs executed 111 trades in the securities of Wing Hang Bank without making the requisite dealing disclosures and no prior consent was obtained as required for 26 of these trades ; and Goldman Sachs failed to comply with the restrictions on issue and distribution of research reports in relation to the research reports it published on Wing Hang Bank. In deciding the sanction, the SFC took into account Goldman Sachs' cooperation and self-reporting of the breaches. Reference Link

Catch up on the weekend's top five stories with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Coca-Cola (KO) announced a minority stake in diary and juice company Chi, with plans to take full ownership within three years. 2. Billionaire investor Nelson Peltz is considering taking an activist position in Time Warner (TWX), the New York Post reported. 3. Toyota (TM) could temporarily halt domestic production after an explosion at a key supplier curbed its supply of steel, Reuters said. 4.

12:33 EDTWFC, MS, BAC, GS, JPM, CU.S. banks could return 20% or more, Barron's says
The banking sector looks like "one of the best bargains in the market," Barron's contends in a cover story. Names such as Citi (C), JPMorgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), BB&T (BBT), PNC Financial (PNC), SunTrust (STI) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) are showing healthy balance sheets and could offer "at least" 20% upside, the publication argues, adding that the industry's exposure to the energy sector "looks manageable" given information offered in recent earnings reports and conference calls.
