U.S. National Economic Director Gary Cohn (L) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin end their breifing after unveiling the Trump administration's tax reform proposal in the White House briefing room in Washington, U.S, April 26, 2017.

Wall Street is increasingly optimistic a version of tax reform will eventually pass after President Donald Trump's administration announced its latest tax-cut proposal.

White House officials revealed on Wednesday Trump's plan for large tax cuts for repatriated offshore corporate profits and a reduction of the corporate tax rate to 15 percent from 35 percent.

Below is a summary of what Wall Street firms are now telling clients Trump's tax-plan announcement means.
