Credit Suisse ( CS) is trending after reporting its first-quarter earnings. The Swiss bank reported a 96% drop in profit after booking 1.5 billion Swiss francs in debt charges. The company posted a net profit of 44 million Swiss francs, down from 1.13 billion francs a year ago, but still beating the forecast of a 436 million franc loss. The company's sale of its stake in Aberdeen Asset Management helped offset the debt charges by 178 million francs. The company, which is currently shedding 7% of its workforce, said it doesn't expect any further job cuts. The bank said it is ahead of its cost-cutting target by 1.2 billion francs. Credit Suisse said it was "encouraged" by the first-quarter performance overall.
