C screwed, BAC probably, COF dead. But amidst the maimed and dead there have to be survivors that will benefit from this mess. And at this point it looks like ALL banks have been thrown out. The proverbial baby with the bath water. I don't like the monster big banks. I like BBT MTB TD PNC USB, buying a bit in each. Not calling a bottom, just dipping a toe. PNC has much less exposure to toxic assets / didn't get involved with as many bad loans because housing in their servicing area did not go as nuts. TD - Canada same thing - housing bubble did not balloon as much. Growing deposits. MTB - took very little TARP, I think they were asked to take it. Growing deposits because they are viewed as healthy, profitable last Q. USB - unjustly punished, they picked up all the GOOD assets on their last acquisition and none of the bad, did not over pay. If you know something I don't on the above (big red flags) = please post. You have any picks - lets see em.
