  HONG KONG, May 31 (Marketwire) -- 
This morning, announced new reports
highlighting Provident Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE: PFS) and Hudson
City Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HCBK). Free research downloads are available

    With markets in correction mode, investors are looking to quantify an
accurate model, weighing positives and negatives of the months ahead.
Upcoming negative pressures include China's slowdown, the European
recession, the end of the Fed's Operation Twist stimulus program,
continued geopolitical risks, election uncertainty, and potential 2013
budget bombshell of tax hikes and spending cuts. Meanwhile, positive
offsets are driven by central banks (particularly China) cutting rather
than hiking rates, deceleration in fuel and food prices, increase in
consumer sentiment and resulting retail sales, signs of improvement in
housing sales and new strength in auto production schedules.

    Despite the current situation, our team continues to identify high
momentum situations with growth potential -- there remains strong
opportunity within careful discretion.
