    "...analyst Mike Mayo says investors should brace for a decade that will bring the “worst revenue growth” for U.S. banks in 80 years."

     

    80 years? I'm certain it's closer to 84 years.

     

    The shorts are getting desperate. Robosigning isn't scaring anybody this week.

     

    Disclosure: Long (take that back, just sold, no, wait...bought again) banks.

    Those same banks that no longer want a relationship with their customers who are worth less than $2 mil, who don't handle their own home loans in their own neighborhoods, who are no longer members of the local chamber of congress, who worship the all mighty dollar and dump on their customers with exorbitant fees. All the while implementing poor security measures and taking every chance to blame their customers for online issues.

     

    Walk into your local bank sometime and you will find there is not much difference between the customer service rep at the bank versus the one at the bookstore.
