Everybody seems to be waiting with bated breath as the results of the stress testings are to be declared soon. Overall, about 91 banks are in the fray. My feeling is that there might be failures in the region of 15. Usual suspects being German 'Landesbaks', Spanish 'Cajas', French banks and, needless to say, Greek banks. Doubts though remain about the quality of result in terms of stringency of parameters applied. More so, given the objective of the test being to assuage fears.
