Regional banks have mounted a comeback in 2010. The lessons learned during the recession appear to have led to the turnaround. One of the biggest changes has been the improvement of credit quality. More thorough and cautious credit checks have led to fewer delinquent loans and in turn greater financial stability.

The turnaround for regional banks has also partially been caused by the demise of smaller banks. There have been 275 bank failures in the United States since 2008. Regional banks have been able to assume assets at a discount and expand their customer base. 

Presently, banks as well as many other financial institutions suffered losses in the wake of poor US trade deficit figures and a down global equities market. The US government had a budget deficit of $165 billion in July coming off a dismal June where the trade gap ballooned to $50 billion. The troubling figures have made many investors cautious about the conclusion of the recession and global economic crisis.

Despite positive changes from regional banks, global financial volatility and lack of investor confidence could fuel continued instability. 

Money center banks KeyCorp and PNC Financial Services Group Inc. both posted their financial results for the quarter on July 22nd with flying colours. For KeyCorp the positive results were a first for nearly two years and the bank attributed this success to a more efficient cost control, increased income from fees and reduced delinquencies. PNC Financial Services Group also experienced a surge in its second quarter profits to $803 million which came as a result of reduced expenditures and lower credit costs. www.rothmanresearch.com provides technical analysis and free downloadable research reports on KeyCorp and PNC Financial Services Group Inc. by signing up now at
