Morning Notes

US Futures are modestly higher this morning while Europe is trading mostly higher and Asian stocks closed mixed. Financials are in the spotlight today after the 30 of 33 banks passed the Fed’s “stress tests.”  Further, many of the major banks announced stock buyback plans following the overnight results of the stress tests.
