    • Increasingly negative policy rates overseas, lame global growth, high financial market volatility, and now a Fed on pace to hike substantially less than hoped ... "None of this is likely supportive of financials sector relative performance," say Wells Fargo's Gina Adams and Peter Chung, downgrading banks from Overweight to Market Weight, and capital markets to Underweight from Market Weight.
    • The only group the team likes as Overweight is insurance, which is likely to show the strongest earnings this year (hard to fathom given low rates).
    • The bank's analysts cover 70 of 90 names in the S&P 500 financials sector, with just 28 of those 70 rated Outperform.

    • The major averages are lower following the blowout jobs number, but the financial sector (XLF +1%) is charging ahead, enthused at what appears to finally be the near-certain prospect of higher interest rates.
    • Short-term interest rate futures are pricing in about a 75% chance of a rate hike next month, and the 10-year Treasury yield is up nine basis points to 2.32%. The two-year yield has soared all the way to 0.90% - its highest level in more than five years.
    • The green in this yield-starved sector is everywhere: Bank of America (BAC +3.5%), Citigroup (C +3.4%), U.S. Bancorp (USB +2.8%), Regions Financial (RF +3.7%), PNC Financial (PNC +2.4%), Capital One (COF +1.4%), Bank of New York  Mellon (BK +1.9%), E*Trade (ETFC +3.5%), Schwab (SCHW +5.1%), Interactive Brokers (IBKR +3.4%), MetLife (MET +3.2%), Prudential (PRU +3.6%).

    • Globally, $103.2B of insurance M&A has taken place this year, the latest being Swiss Re's agreement this week to buy the U.K. Guardian Holdings Europe for about $2.5B.
    • The drivers - new capital requirements, sluggish profit growth, and low investment returns - are likely to be sustained for some time, says Evercore's Andrew Sibbald.
    • “What can they do to become more competitive,” asked another analyst. “Reduce their cost and that leads directly to getting together and acquiring each other.”

    • While U.S. growth is bouncing back, the Fed needs to hold off on rate hikes until "clear signs of wage and price inflation," says the IMF, putting itself at odds with Janet Yellen who has said "clear signs" are not a prerequisite for higher rates.
    • The IMF doesn't see inflation hitting the Fed target of 2% until at least 2017, and would prefer rate hikes wait until at least 2016.
    • As part of the same report, the IMF also warns the life insurance industry poses a risk to the country's financial stability - whether it be from too low rates posing "a slow burning solvency risk," or a spike in rates leading to policyholder surrenders.

    • Financials sunk along with Treasury yields last week, but are seeing a strong bounce today alongside a ten basis point gain in the 10-year yield to 2.36%.
    • The XLF is up 1.6% versus the S&P 500's 0.7% gain.
    • Helping U.S. equity markets is movement toward a Greek debt deal which sent Europe's Stoxx 50 hurtling 4% higher on the session. Yields tumbled in the periphery, but are sharply higher in Germany as well as the U.S.
    • Yield-sensitive Bank of America (BAC +1.8%) is leading the TBTF names higher. In regionals: PNC Financial (PCN -0.2%), KeyCorp (KEY +1.2%), Regions Financial (RF +1.4%), SunTrust (STI +1.3%), First Niagara (FNFG +1.2%).
    • Life insurers: MetLife (MET +2%), Prudential (PRU +1.6%), Lincoln FInancial (LNC +1.4%). Online brokers: E*Trade (ETFC +3.3%), Schwab (SCHW +2.2%), Ameritrade (AMTD +1.3%).

    • The averages are flat to negative this session, but yield-starved financials are digging the big jump in interest rates - the 10-year Treasury yield is up nine basis points on the session to 2.27%, and 15 bps for the week.
    • Previously: Yields surge as European deflation fears abate (June 2)
    • The Regional Bank ETF (KRE +1.3%) and the Bank ETF (KBE +1.2%).
    • Individual names: Regions Financial (RF +1.6%), New York Community Bank (NYCB +1.3%), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN +1.3%), KeyCorp (KEY +1%), Fifth Third (FITB +1.3%). Thought of as perhaps the most asset-sensitive of the large lenders, Bank of America (BAC +1%) is leading the TBTFs higher.
    • Life insurers: MetLife (MET +1.2%), Prudential (PRU +1.5%), Lincoln Financial (LNC +0.9%), Primerica (PRI +1.2%).

    • At least so far, this year is looking a lot like the last few years to those waiting for higher interest rates to boost spread income. Writing in the company annual report, MetLife (NYSE:MET) CEO Steven Kandarian says the insurer continues to expect a 10-year Treasury yield of 4-4.5% by year-end 2017, but the risk remains of a miss to the underside.
    • If rates do stay low, says Kandarian, maintaining last year's 12% ROE over the long term would prove difficult. Investors, says Kandarian, should judge financial companies not on absolute ROE, but on the spread between ROE and 10-year yields.
    • It makes sense, writes John Carney, but sounds like a warning signal on returns going forward, not just for MetLife, but its insurance peers and the banks.

    • A turnaround from the action earlier this year - financials (XLF +0.9%) are marching higher in early action as the averages slip, as nervous investors buy back in following the stress test results. Also helping are surging interest rates following the strong jobs number.
    • Looking at a pretty broad screen of bank names, just two - Goldman Sachs and Zions, both of which barely passed the stress test - are lower. Among the others: Bank of America (BAC +3.7%), JPMorgan (JPM +1.1%), U.S. Bancorp (USB +1.6%), Regions FInancial (RF +2.3%), KeyCorp (KEY +2.7%), PNC Financial (PNC +2.3%), BB&T (BBT +2.4%), Fifth Third (FITB +2.2%), Comerica (CMA +3.8%), BNY Mellon (BK +2.9%).
    • Among those starved for higher rates: MetLife (MET +3%), Prudential (PRU +3.3%), Lincoln National (LNC +4.1%), AIG (AIG +1.4%),  Hartford (HIG +2%), E*Trade (ETFC +3.9%), Schwab (SCHW +4.4%), Ameritrade (AMTD +4.3%).
    • Previously: Futures slip after jobs number as yields and dollar soar (March 6)
