Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) may try to hold on to 316 branches it failed to unload in its collapsed $2.7B deal with Santander (SAN), due to a "more flexible" regulatory climate. “It used to be a pretty severe regime but they are making different judgments,” RBS Chairman Philip Hampton says about the bailout-forced deal.

    RBS paid me about 50c on the dollar for investments in preferred stock that I made long ago.

    Avoid RBS at all costs.

    I'm still waiting for the day that my RBS preferreds are resuming payments. Will it be ever?
