What matters in the earnings report: (i) revenue momentum-loan, deposit, primary checking and credit card account growth; (ii) balance sheet management: liquidity build/deployment, securities portfolio mix shifts and its impact on asset sensitivity and TLAC implementation progress; (iii) evidence that the bank is holding its own in market-related businesses-wealth management, retail brokerage and investment banking; (iv) expense management... we expect an elevated efficiency ratio (~61%) but are equally as interested in branch rationalization progress and any change in management's determination/disposition toward tightening up on spending; (v) stable credit quality and the capacity for additional energy-related loan loss reserve release.
