    There's no letup in sight for U.S. banks, CLSA's Mike Mayo says: "This is going to be the worst revenue growth year for U.S. banks since 1938, and next year is not going to be a whole lot better." Mayo has Underperform or Sell ratings on 13 of the 19 U.S. banks he covers; his only Buy is PNC, because management has "stuck to their knitting."

    Fitch has it wrong, U.S. banks could actually wind up benefitting from Europe's debt crisis, says Rochdale's Dick Bove, He cites two reasons: First, U.S. banks have a relatively low level of exposure to European banks. Second, the problems facing European banks could actually drive business to seek healthier institutions in the U.S. His top picks: PNC Financial (PNC) and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB). Both get hit when Europe erupts, but neither are heavily exposed to European banks.
  • Nov. 3, 2011, 2:05 PM 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.

    What happens in Europe is irrelevant to U.S. banks, says Dick Bove. It may mean everything to investors, but it has nothing to do with the operating earnings of these companies. Regional banks, trust banks and national banks are all doing quite well. His top picks: U.S. Bancorp (USB), PNC (PNC), BNY Mellon (BK), State Street (STT) and Northern Trust (NTRS). (video)

The best positioned in those terms, Goldman says: WFC -1.4%, JPM -1.9%, PNC -1.8%.

    Dividend talk gains steam: Stifel says it found a good income play in PNC Financial (PNC +0.8%). "PNC has the best combination of attractive dividend yield, low payout ratio and high profitability for those investors that are willing to wade back into the banks amid all the macro uncertainty."

    Bank of America's (BAC) difficulties could mean gains for smaller players like PNC, U.S. Bancorp (USB), and Toronto-Dominion (TD). These lenders can pick up market share as well as assets on the cheap that BofA is unloading. "Whoever is most aggressive ... will benefit," says Chris Thornberg.
