Resultaten stress test in de VS :
Bank shares were lower in after-hour trading.
The Fed’s annual stress test of the major banks shows some banks could get close to minimum capital levels in scenarios related to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of this, banks must suspend share repurchase programs and keep dividend payments at current levels for the third quarter.
“While I expect banks will continue to manage their capital actions and liquidity risk prudently, and in support of the real economy, there is material uncertainty about the trajectory for the economic recovery,” Fed Vice Chair Randall Quarles said in a statement.
The announcement sent some bank shares lower in after-hours trading. Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase both dipped 1.3%. Wells Fargo slid 3.5% and Goldman Sachs fell more than 3%. Bank stocks were coming off sharp gains, rallying more than 3% during regular trading Thursday.
