Bailout for Breakfast: More Stress

The stress test rumor mill continues to heat up. "At least" six of the 19 banks have been told they need more of a capital buffer, Bloomberg reports. Meanwhile, according to the Financial Times, Citigroup has been scrambling to raise the additional capital it has been told it needs, so that it won't have to take even more bailout cash. And the behind-the-scenes haggling between regulators and the banks about the results of the stress tests has led the government to push back the public release of those results from Monday, May 4, to possibly as late as Wednesday of next week.
