The proposed doubling of bank (XLF) minimum leverage ratios to 6% isn't a big deal, says Credit Suisse, noting COF, WFC, PNC, and UBS are already above that level. The three with the lowest current levels (4.6% to 5.1%) - C, JPM, BAC - wouldn't have an issue getting to 6% if necessary. CS also notes the likelihood it won't be 6%, but instead a number well underneath.
