“I don’t think Staley as CEO signals they are going to double down or expand the investment bank, and the words ‘European investment-banking champion’ give me a tremendous amount of indigestion” after the financial crisis, said Joseph Dickerson, an analyst at Jefferies International Ltd., who has a buy rating on the stock. “The capital position of the European banks is still a lot lower than that of U.S. banks, so it’s hard to see how they’ll expand.” [Bloomberg, earlier]
