Three pathways to high performance for banks

High performers in this category, including Bank of the Ozarks in Little Rock, Ark., and Western Alliance Bancorp in Phoenix, are characterized by high growth rates in loans and core deposits. But they grow without sacrificing credit quality or margins. They have higher yields on earning assets and lower costs of funds than peers.

Over the past few years, the most successful banks in this category have maintained high profitability by building scale and streamlining processes. This has allowed them to continually reduce their expense levels as a percentage of average assets.

Fee income superstars: Other high performers are reliant on fee income as the key contributor to the bottom line. Across each asset size group, fee income superstars more than doubled the industry median of noninterest income to average assets. But they are very different from each other in how they generate fees. Some, like Federal Savings Bank in Chicago, rely on mortgage banking. Woodforest Financial Group in The Woodlands, Texas, generates high levels of interchange fees and deposit service charges. Others have wealth management, insurance or cash management businesses.

The rumors are true: U2 coming to US Bank Stadium in September

Turns out the Irish arena rock legends are coming to town after all, swooping anthemically into the U.S. Bank Stadium on September 8. This date was announced today as part of a second leg of the band's Joshua Tree Tour, celebrating that album's 30th anniversary.

Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Prices start at $35, with general admission floor seats at $70.

We were told to expect two concerts per year at the Bank. But with Justin Bieber, Coldplay, and Guns N' Roses announced already, this makes four huge tours passing through this summer -- that's half as many shows as regular-season home games that the Vikings play there. So maybe our gruesome corporate sports monolith is worth every wheelbarrow of taxpayer cash that the Wilfs carted off with them, right? (Don't answer that.)

If you'd like a little taste of what to expect in September, here's our review of the Saturday night concert in Chicago.

No opener has yet been named, but Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds are the warm-up act on several of the new dates announced today, and they'd certainly be a step up from the dreaded Lumineers. (But watch out for the Bank's mirrored glass exterior, High Flying Birds!)
