    Conditional approval makes it sound like JPM and GS are children. Both probably buys on this dip

    Both may be "buys" if they dip notably more than their peer group (MS, C, BAC). The Fed is punishing both JPM and GS for their culture of ethically challenged client practices, and JPM additionally for the "Whale" episode.

    JPM
    I dont understand why dividend increase is not being made effective from 2nd quarter. If this is improved shareholders would have lot of confidence. Now only excellent results of atleast EPS 1.5 can salvage the damage done today to the value of script.

    BB&T's Kelly King has some explaining to do. Possibly he should consider being a little more transparent (honest) with his financial reporting. The man has a tremendous franchise; however, his selfishness and devious behavior is disastrous to his shareholders.
    This is my opinion.
