First Republic Bank stock FRC was down 4% premarket, after it said it would suspend its dividend to conserve cash. JP Morgan analysts said the move by banks to help a smaller rival was a positive; “however, news late last night of post market drop in First Republic’s stock price is likely to rattle investors as markets remain fragile,” they wrote early Friday.
