Goldman Sachs Group Inc and Credit Suisse Group AG has issued reports indicating the asset quality remains a concern for DBS, with the latter firm downgrading the stock to neutral from outperform.  This comes after DBS handling of loans to Swiber Holdings failed to ease concerns that more losses could emerge. The consensus analyst rating on South East Asia’s largest bank has dropped to lowest in almost seven years.
