Authorities are set to crack down on eight financial firms that weren't part of the recent deal over problematic foreclosure practices, which are allegedly still being used in the industry. Last week, a senior Fed official recommended fines for the companies, including for HSBC's (HBC) U.S. bank division, MetLife (MET) and Goldman Sachs (GS).
