TheStreet.com says regional banks are using acquisitions to build market share and grow revenues with European banks exiting the U.S. market to concentrate on their sovereign debt headaches. Despite facing exposure to the U.S. economy and pressure on margins from low interest rates, regionals looks ripe to outperform. Picks: USB, WBS, FITB, EWBC, PNC.

    I agree with this premise, not fond of the TBTF banks - though I do have a small (BAC) holding. Been looking around for an ETF or fund that only has regional banks.

    I've written on PNC before and agree with this as well. I think PNC have a lot of potential, and I switched to them given their customer service and overall banking package.
