Volume since late October has been declining, the advance-decline line and momentum indicators have not confirmed the latest highs, and sentiment indicators are frothy. As confidence in the recovery breaks down and money managers lock in 2009 profits, equities will fall—especially banks that have risen excessively in the last six months.

Regional Bank headquartered in Seattle but ran the right way!! It is a portfolio lender who does not sell any of its loans and has underwritten them properly. This bank is capitalized perfectly and positioned just right to continue buying more bargains as they arise. Loan Portfolio is A+ with ever growing deposit base and strong growth!! This is the most stable bank in the country and will outpreform every bank in the industry!!

My favorite banking stock, Washington Federal is on sale with the other bank stocks and should do well since they are a great company.
