U.S. banks are preparing to advance in the sector after reporting earnings, with executives touting the gloom coming from their European counterparts as a major opportunity to capitalize on their newfound advantage, the Wall Street Journal reports. On Thursday, Deutsche Bank (DB) CEO John Cryan said that the company must "shrink" its balance sheet, while Barclays (BCS) chairman John McFarlane said that Wall Street lenders are "an enormous threat" to Euro investment banks, the report says. On the other hand, Morgan Stanley (MS) chairman James Gorman said after reporting earnings last week that the company is poised to advanced in the debt trading sector, and that "there's a potential for, over a period of time, share gain for our business," the report says. In addition, Goldman Sachs finance chief Harvey Schwartz said that the company is "seeing potential big restructuring on the European side," the report adds. Publicly traded companies in the European space include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).

06:55 EDTGSBanks pitch total-return swaps as stock purchase alternative, WSJ reports
Banks have been pitching certain hedge fund clients on using derivatives instead of actual stocks when placing certain bets in an effort to lessen the impact of new capital rules on the banks' businesses, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the efforts. The shift involves derivatives known as total-return swaps that mirror the effects of owning a stock or other asset, the report says. Units of Bank of America (BAC), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), and UBS (UBS) are among the banks asking clients to shift trades into total-return swaps instead of underlying securities, the report says.
