    Want to buy banks? Look at some of the regionals, says Dick Bove. The big universals are dealing with a multitude of issues that impede their competitiveness, while community banks are being weighed down by regulations that are driving them out of the business. Firms in the middle tier however, are growing their key commercial and industrial lending portfolios while their competitors have had to pull back. His picks: US Bancorp (USB), PNC Financial (PNC) and Capital One (COF).

    PNC Financial Services (PNC -2.8%) trails the market after its Q4 EPS missed estimates earlier today. Profit slid 42% Y/Y as the lender continues to struggle with a decline in revenue and steep charges. One positive takeaway however, is that credit costs continue to fall. Loan loss provisions totaled $190M for the quarter, down significantly from $442M the year prior.
