Well-run midsize or regional banks should be growing like crazy right now, but they are being held back by all the attention paid to the big banks and the special Treasury access that the larger banks get.
Let the big ones fail, and let the better-run regionals take over.
“Let the better run regionals (banks) take over.”
Warren Buffet took a big position in regional banks this spring. He probably could see that the investment (gambling) banks were headed for a fall, whereas the savings bank are a much better deal and should indeed be doing a lot better.
