    Uncertain capital requirements, unknown Dodd-Frank repercussions and severely beaten down stock valuations are likely to result in more divestitures and resulting consolidations of the financial services industry. Don't be fooled by persistent industry naysayers, there will be winners and they will eventually be very profitable because there will be less competition. I don't know when but it will happen.
