AmEx sees keeping dividend at 43 cents in Q3; SCB is 2.5%
As a result of the Fed's CCAR stress test, AXP's preliminary stress capital buffer requirement is 2.5%.
Taking into account the preliminary SCB, the minimum common equity tier 1 capital ratio for the company will effectively be 7.0%, subject to confirmation of the SCB.
Its target range for its CET1 capital ratio remains at 10%-11%; AXP's capital ratio in Q1 2020 was 11.9%, above its target range.
