Jim Cramer: The Move Out of Regional Banks Is Fed-Fueled

JP Morgan’s stock was the most upsetting. Citigroup’s stock hung in and then rallied, but it had been the most abused coming into the quarter — which is always helpful, especially when the company is the biggest buyer of its own stock of the group, something it can do because it has gone from worst to first in the eyes of the regulators. It’s worth noting that the stock of Goldman Sachs has had two strong days after the quarter, an aberration from the usual, negative pattern — particularly on the second day, when the window opens for insider selling.

Senator Warren urges Fed to require removal of Wells Fargo CEO

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Thursday the Federal Reserve should not allow Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) to grow in size until the bank replaces Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan. In a letter to Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, Warren said Sloan, a 30-year veteran of Wells, was “deeply implicated” in prior bank misconduct and it was untenable for him to remain at the bank as the Fed sought a drastic overhaul of its operations. “The Wells Fargo Board of Directors cannot plausibly claim that it is ‘ensuring senior management’s ongoing effectiveness in managing the firm’s activities’ while retaining a CEO that helped oversee this much misconduct,” she wrote.
