06:58 EDTGSFed 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 EDTGSBofA 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

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

12:33 EDTGSU.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.

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. The firm says that the banks' Q4 results were stable, and it expects the group to benefit from steady loan growth and slightly rising NIMs in 2016. Oppenheimer continues to recommend Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Discover (DFS), and Fifth Third (FITB)

Detwiler Fenton said TreeHouse (THS) may benefit from Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) and Starbucks' (SBUX) focust shift into new products. Keurig Green Mountain dropping of its private-label business opens the door for TreeHouse to take market share, the firm's analyst said.
