LONDON, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The U.S. banking industry has emerged stronger from the financial crisis of
2009. U.S. banks have a stronger balance sheet compared to European banks. The
industry has benefited from an increase in lending activity in the last one
year. However, for banks such as Associated Banc Corp. (NASDAQ: ASBC),
CubeSmart (NYSE: CUBE), Redwood Trust Inc. (NYSE: RWT), and Bank of Montreal
(NYSE: BMO), record low interest rates are a concern. While record low
interest rates have boosted lending activity, they are putting pressure on
banks' net interest margins. Bank's stocks ended on a mixed in Friday's
trading session as the broad market came under pressure following
disappointing non-farm payrolls data for the month of March. StockCall has
