Regionals won't be making any major deals. Here's why

At first blush, industry conditions appear ripe for dealmaking. Banks are flush with capital and tax savings. Regulation-lite is in vogue. Commercial lending — the lifeblood of large regionals — is in the dumps. And deposit growth is getting harder except for maybe the largest banks.

But regional bank CEOs have made clear in recent days that major acquisitions are all but off the table at the moment.

There are a number of reasons why — the most immediate being the recent slump in bank stocks, which has made buying back shares an attractive option for deploying capital. Since the beginning of the year, the KBW Nasdaq Bank Index has declined 7%, while shares of large regionals such as KeyCorp (down 12%) and Citizens Financial Group (down 17%) have slid more.

Perhaps more importantly, though, banks are focused on safer deals for specialty services and on making big investments in technology . During the third quarter, banks have reported large step-ups in their digital investments compared with a year earlier, and CEOs have defended their spending on better mobile apps, online lending platforms and back-end systems as high priority.

Why can't Republicans see that the Ad about Bain Capital proved Romeny sent jobs overseas?

Meaning, I was watching the American Television and this commerical for Bain Capital came on. And it said that Romney didn't create jobs, and sent them overseas, which means by rule Republicans can now not vote for him.


All negative political attack ads are lies. Even when your favorite team airs one.
