EU serves up more fudge on bank stress tests

There were no nasty surprises in the latest European bank stress tests. But there is the usual whiff of “eurofudge” about the results.

Bargains in the banking sector

Many of Europe’s banks still look pretty haggard, says John Stepek. But if you look carefully, you might just find some bargains.
