    If shareholders crush the Glen-Xstrata merger tomorrow, the pain will be deep for the 10 investment banks that worked on the deal. BNP Paribas, which advised Glencore, would suffer the steepest fall in the global M&A adviser rankings, sliding from no. 14 to no. 23; BofA (BAC), which wasn’t on the deal, would benefit most, rising from no. 8 to no. 4.

    "This type of environment  makes my job quite easy," says fund manager David Herro, who is "significantly adding" to his stock positions as 580 companies in the MSCI indexes trade for less than the value of their net assets. On the other hand, "safe" health-care and consumer products firms are trading at their highest level in more than 10 years, according to the same gauge.

    Also somewhat unexpectedly included, according to CNBC, in the list of banks getting cut is one Canadian lender, Royal Bank of Canada (RY -3.7%). Among the European banks touched are Deutsche Bank (DB), BNP Paribas (BNPQY.PK), and Credit Suisse (CS), which recently got a warning from the SNB.

    Sam Hocking, global head of prime brokerage sales at BNP Paribas (BNPQY.PK), resigns for personal reasons. He joined BNP in 2008 when the French bank acquired Bank of America's prime brokerage business (prior to BofA getting back into prime brokerage when it bought Merrill Lynch).

    Some of Europe's biggest banks are preparing to pay back some LTRO funds in the next 12 months. The banks, which sources say include UniCredit, BNP Paribas and SocGen, are keen to repay the money as soon as they can - December of this year - even though they have until Dec. 2014 and Feb. 2015.

    Morgan Stanley sees the chance of multiple earnings upgrades for EU banks as the wave of liqudity from ECB's LTRO is stoking action. January was likely the best month for credit trading in 2 years, MS says, and FICC (fixed income, commodity, and currency) revenue could double in Q1 from Q4.

    Wells Fargo (WFC) has agreed to buy an energy loan portfolio with a face value of $11B from BNP Paribas (BNOBF.PK). Only $4B of the loans have thus far been drawn by borrowers. The deal is part of a broader effort by BNP to reduce its balance sheet by ~10% by year's end. Many other European banks are also conducting asset sales.(previously)

    BNP Paribas (BNPQY.PK) provides a window into the ECB's LTRO, saying it took advantage of the cheap funding in December, but deposited most of the money right back with the ECB. A bit less scared now, the bank is looking at ways of more usefully deploying it. (earnings earlier)

    Morgan Stanley's non-comprehensive table of EU banks' participation in the ECB's LTRO last month shows Italian and Spanish lenders diving in with both feet, with many more than satisfying their 2012 funding needs. "It is clear that Italian and Spanish mid-caps have no other option than to rely upon the LTRO." Data from French lenders has not yet been obtained.

    French banks made their funding more robust in 2011 by increasing deposits by €130B ($167B) as part of efforts to bring their funding back on balance sheet, Fitch says. The growth came partially at the expense of European money market funds, which lost €55B. Funding through deposits is treated more favourably under Basel III.

    In addition to the EFSF, the next target in S&P's sights could be beleagured French banks, which have suffered due to their eurozone debt exposure. Still, BNP Paribas (BNPQY.PK) could be spared - for now - as France's downgrade was only one notch, while some analysts played down the affect of further ratings cuts on banks.

    BNP Paribas (BNPQY.PK) becomes the latest bank to withdraw from lawsuits challenging the 2009 restructuring of MBIA (MBI). BofA (BAC) and UBS (UBS) are among the four remaining banks still moving ahead with legal claims against the bond insurer.

    S&P's Scott Bugie says the ECB's €489B liquidity infusion Wednesday was just that - liquidity, not solvency, and by itself will not prevent threatened ratings downgrades of the EU's banks. "It's kicking the can a long way down the road rather than just a little bit, but in the end it is still kicking the big old can down the road."
