This quiet, little known, small bank trades in fairly narrow range, but agressive branch acquisitions and facilities improvement should reward the patient investor.

NWBI has maintained their integrity as a regional bank with few issues that have plagued the banking industry. Prior to 2008, NWBI had already begun shedding riskier loans but had also maintained high standards for making consumer loans.

Northwest runs light. Well structured and focused on customer service -- NOT sales. What a concept! They have outperformed the S&P consistantly for almost a year now and they are weel prepared for the tough months ahead.

Amidst turmoil in the financial sector this week and over the past year, the following is a list of Pennsylvania-based banks and financial services companies with market caps over $100M that have recorded stock price gains over the past year.

The 11 companies are listed in descending order by 52-week stock price performance (through 9/14/08) and include the following top performers: Univest – biggest gainer at 38%, First Commonwealth (which I wrote about 15 months ago with a yield over 6%) – biggest dividend yield at 5.4%, and PNC Financial – biggest market cap at $25.3B. With Dow component American International Group (AIG) down over 30% on Friday, and other blow-ups this week such as Lehman Brothers (LEH) and Washington Mutual (WM), the strength in these Keystone State banks is notable and reflects investor confidence in their management and business fundamentals.

Company Name (Ticker), 52-Week Change, Market Cap, Dividend Yield

Univest Corp. of PA (UVSP) +38.0%, $380M, 2.7%
Beneficial Mutual Bancorp (BNCL) +27.9%, $991M, 0%
Republic First Bancorp (FRBK) +23.2%, $108M, 0%
Citizens & Northern Corp. (CZNC) +21.4%, $197M, 4.4%
First Commonwealth Financial (FCF) +15.7%, $924M, 5.4%
Bryn Mawr Bank Corp. (BMTC) +6.7%, $199M, 2.4%
PNC Financial Services (PNC) +6.6%, $25.3B, 3.6%
Abington Bancorp (ABBC) +6.5%, $248M, 2.0%
S&T Bancorp (STBA) +3.5%, $954M, 3.6%
ESB Financial Corp. (ESBF) +2.9%, $126M, 3.9%
Northwest Bancorp (NWSB) +1.7%, $1.4B, 3.1%
My favorite picks going forward include PNC, FCF, and NWSB.
