According to the Federal Reserve, the rate at which banks are granting commercial and industrial loans has risen in the last two consecutive months. From the third to the fourth quarter, lending rose 0.2%, the first time quarterly lending has risen in two years. Visit www.stockcall.com/ to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

On the residential side of things, a temporary moratorium on foreclosures as a result of complications stemming from pre-recession lending has skewed some banks' fourth quarter results. 

Overall, the uptick in lending is a good sign for banks which were forced to tighten their lending processes after financial reform was passed earlier this year. The increase in loans could indicate that banks are stable enough to take on risks, although to a much lesser extent than seen prior to the recession.
