- Liquidity is becoming an issue at many community and regional banks, says Sterne Agee's Matthew Kelley, noting growing loan-to-deposit ratios. Bank runs are not the worry, but keeping loan pipelines well funded is, and a number of smaller players could be acquisition targets for lenders looking to boost deposits.
- Kelley's list of 12 possibilities in the Northeast: Westfield Financial (WFD +0.1%), Century Bancorp (CNBKA -0.9%), Hudson Valley Holding (HVB +0.1%), Republic First (FRBK +1%), Metro Bancorp (METR +0.4%), Suffolk Bancorp (SUBK +3.3%), Citizens and Northern (CZNC +0.3%), Sun Bancorp (SNBC), First Niagara (FNFG +1.7%), Orrstown Financial (ORRF +0.4%), Camden National (CAC +0.5%), Cambridge Bancorp (CATC +0.2%).
- Under pressure to raise deposits? Susquehanna Bancshares (SUSQ -0.6%) - whose loan-to-deposit ratio rose to 105.5% in Q4 from 102.5% a year earlier. Investors Bancorp (ISBC) with a ratio of 120%, New York Community Bancorp (NYCB), Astoria Financial (AF +0.8%), and People's United (PBCT +0.2%).
