Credit Sector Roundup

Banks
In our last quarterly update, we predicted some banks would begin to return capital to shareholders in the new year, and only a few minutes after the Federal Reserve announced the completion of its Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR), a few of the strongest banks we cover--including J.P. Morgan Chase (JPM, rating: A+), Wells Fargo (WFC, rating: A+), US Bancorp (USB, rating: A+), and State Street (STT, rating: A-)--raised their dividend payouts and announced share repurchases.
