FACTBOX-Europe’s stress test results

July 26, 2010

July 26 (Reuters) – Investors took some reassurance on Monday that most European banks had passed “stress tests” on their ability to deal with a debt crisis, driving up European bank stocks.

The following list shows which banks passed and which failed the tests requiring them to have a 6 percent tier one capital ratio under scenarios of worsened economic conditions. It shows their tier one ratio under the harshest scenario, which included a fall in the value of their sovereign bond holdings

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
