S&P more than doubles to $10B the amount of annual profit it estimates banks stand to lose as a result of the Volcker rule. "Stricter rules could lead us to take negative rating actions on certain banks." In addition to the usual 6 TBTF names, PNC and USB were included in the analysis. The combined profits of all 8 lenders will sum to less than $100B this year.

    Does this mean that thieves and grossly overpaid CEO's running these banks will get $10 B less in compensation. It should.

    Seems a misleading way to describe the impact. If the Volcker rule goes into effect, banks will have to transition back into being banks, and trading firms will have to drop their bank holding status.
