From MarketWatch: Companies try to scramble aboard SEC lifeboat

Companies omitted include General Electric Co., American Express, Capital One, which all have huge financial-services businesses. ... A person familiar with the situation said [GE] has talked to the SEC about possibly being included on the list. American Express ... said it was just beginning to look into the possibility of being added.

CIT Group ... "made a formal request to be added to the list," spokesman Curtis Ritter said in an email to MarketWatch. ... Guaranty Financial Group Inc. said Friday that it should be added to the list too.
I'd be impressed if someone asked to get off the list.
