The United States banking industry is still questionable even though we have seen a sizeable recovery in recent quarters and several catalysts are to blame: asset quality is in check, tight regulations and banks tightening their belts, and worst of all the continued rise of residential and commercial foreclosures and loan defaults. Better news is that while low liquidity, loan demand and revenues continue to plague the financial system, help from the government has kept the industry relatively stable. Banks are aggressively playing "catch-up" concentrating on problem credits in residential and commercial real estate and the government has raised the bar providing substantial capital and debt guarantees.
