LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
While U.S. banks have recovered from the financial crisis of 2009 and are fundamentally stronger, banks in Europe such as Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (NYSE: BBVA) and Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) are still operating in a challenging environment. The European Central Bank's (ECB) LTRO program last year had helped in stabilizing Eurozone's banking system; however, recent developments in Cyprus have raised concerns over possible bank runs in peripheral Eurozone economies. Meanwhile, banks in the developed world as well as those operating in the emerging markets such as Banco Santander (Brasil) SA (NYSE: BSBR), Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico SAB de CV (NYSE: BSMX) have been under pressure to strengthen their capital ratios. Foreign bank stocks ended on a mixed note on Thursday even as the broad market struggled. StockCall free coverage on BSBR, BSMX, BBVA, and DB is available upon registration at
