TABLE-U.S. banks' capital ratios under Fed stress tests

Thu Mar 20, 2014 4:00pm EDT

March 20 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve said on Thursday
that all but one of the 30 banks it subjected to its annual
stress tests had sufficient capital to withstand a hypothetical
economic crisis. 
    Only Zions Bancorporation, a Salt Lake City,
Utah-based lender with $56.0 billion in assets, would be left
with a regulatory capital ratio beneath the Fed's 5.0 percent
minimum under the exercise. 
    The results of the tests inform regulators' decision on
whether to allow banks to repurchase their shares or pay
dividends in the coming year. That announcement will be made on
March 26. 
    Below is a table of how each bank would perform in a
scenario in which the unemployment rate rises to 11.25 percent,
the stock market falls by nearly 50 percent, and home prices
decline by one-quarter over a 15-month period:
