First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) stock is falling on Wednesday after being hit with a downgrade from S&P.
That downgrade has S&P dropping the bank’s credit rating from “A-” to “BB+”. The firm believes that First Republic Bank’s outflow risk is still a major problem even after its liquidity was increased to $70 billion earlier this week.
All of this comes as First Republic Bank was one of the banks to majorly suffer following the SVB Financial (NASDAQ:SIVB) collapse. This caused a major bank stock crash this week, and shares of FRC were hit incredibly hard during it.
