  • Consider This Regional Bank

    By Vladimir Zernov - July 21, 2013 | Tickers: CMA, HBAN, PVTB

    Rising rates have sent most regional banks higher since the mid-June. Some of them, like Comerica (NYSE: CMA), have already gained more than 40% this year. Other Midwest banks, like Privatebancorp (NASDAQ: PVTB) and Huntington (NASDAQ: HBAN) are on the move too, up 55% and 33% respectively. As all of them have already published their quarterly results during this earnings season, it’s time to evaluate, whether those shares have more »

    By Jacob Wolinsky - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: HBAN, PNC, BPOP

    At a time when major banking corporations are stifled by the expectations of stricter capital rules, regional banking stocks such as Popular (NASDAQ: BPOP), Huntington Bancshares (NASDAQ: HBAN), and PNC Financial Services (NYSE: PNC) continue to make headway.

    To be on the right side of the fence, regional banks actually never lost their appeal, but they now stand an even greater chance of attracting bigger investors as many would be more »

    F.N.B. Corporation's (NYSE: FNB) recent announcement that it would acquire Baltimore County Savings Bank (NASDAQ: BCSB) did not come as a surprise to many market-watchers.

  • The Sun Is Shining on This Regional

    By Marshall Hargrave - June 23, 2013 | Tickers: BBT, FITB, HBAN, STI

    SunTrust Banks (NYSE: STI) is one of the largest regional banks and it appears that the dark cloud of the financial crisis could be moving away, which should allow this bank to shine going forward. The bank has managed to under-perform the broader banking market by nearly 15 percentage points over the past 12 months, but its compelling valuation means the stock could move higher going forward.

    By Bill Edson - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: C, FMER, HBAN, PNC

    Our economy is dependent on a healthy banking system. By many measures, especially capitalization, banks are healthier today than at any time in recent memory.

  • The Dilemma for Regional Banks

    By Varun Chandan - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: HBAN, PNC, USB | Editor's Choice

    Regional banks have emerged stronger after the financial crisis. However, most regional banks have been facing significant margin pressure as the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at record low levels. While the low interest rate has helped in boosting lending activity, it has hurt banks’ margins. Although regional banks are hoping for a rise in interest rates, they face a dilemma. A sudden rise in interest rates could hurt more »

  • 5 Dividend Stocks With Recent Insider Buying

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - May 23, 2013 | Tickers: DPS, HBAN, MYE, PBI, BA

    Generally, insiders buy stock in their own company when they feel confident about the company’s market prospects and outlook. Sometimes insiders buy stock in their own companies so as to show commitment to working to enhance shareholder value over time.

  • 3 Must-Own Stocks from Barron's Insider Buying List

    By John Macris - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: BAC, HBAN, WAG

    One of my weekly rituals as an investor is to review recent insider activity through the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Form 4 filings. Corporate executives and board members (“insiders”) are required to fully disclose their stock purchases pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Investment Company Act of 1940.

  • Sorting Through the Regionals

    By Marshall Hargrave - April 15, 2013 | Tickers: BBT, FITB, HBAN, RF, STI

    Standard & Poor's has a positive outlook for regional banks, as do I. These banks tend to have less exposure to international concerns and also are purer plays on deposits and consumer/small business economic health, whereas the exposure of mega-banks can be susceptible to trading and other "unplanned" losses.
    The regionals should see positive performance going forward on the back of home refinancing and gains on loans. According to more »

    By Maxwell Fisher - March 14, 2013 | Tickers: CMA, FITB, FMER, HBAN

    Cincinnati based Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ: FITB) has a well-earned reputation as a conservative, well run institution.

  • Consider Regional Banks for Value and Income

    By Bob Ciura - February 11, 2013 | Tickers: HBAN, KEY, NYCB

    Compared to the "big" banks (Citigroup Inc., Bank of America, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo and U.S. Bancorp), the regional banks (BB&T Corporation (NYSE: BBT), Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ: HBAN), Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ: FITB), Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE: RF) and PNC Financial Services (NYSE: PNC)) trade cheaply as a group on a P/B and P/E basis.
