Southeast regional banks First Horizon National Corp. and Regions Financial Corp. have performed encouragingly from the beginning of the year. Foreign markets have had a lesser effect on U.S. regional banks but there are concerns about the effect poor U.S. jobs data will have on the industry. Fewer provisions for loan losses have been one of the driving forces behind the industry's recovery. Stagnant job growth and spikes in unemployment may undo this trend and narrow margins for several banks.

Moving forward, regional banks should be able to provide near-term stability but if the jobs market continues to falter in the U.S., some or all of the progress seen this year could be undone.
