LONDON, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Editor Note: For more information about this release, please scroll to bottom.



In a recent report, ratings agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) noted that major
U.S. regional banks reported "favorable" financial results in the first
quarter of 2013. According to S&P, regional banks' asset quality showed
further progress and their capital ratios also improved. The rating agency
also noted that the funding profile of large U.S. regional banks remained
favorable. However, S&P expects low interest rates to continue to hurt
regional banks' net interest margins (NIMs). On Wednesday, June 19, 2013,
shares in regional banks ended mostly lower, tracking losses in the broader
market which plunged after the release of Federal Reserve's monetary policy
statement. The major movers in the sector included Regions Financial
Corporation (NYSE: RF), Synovus Financial Corp. (NYSE: SNV), BB&T Corporation
(NYSE: BBT), First Horizon National Corporation (NYSE: FHN), and Fulton
Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: FULT). AAAResearchReports.com tracked RF, SNV, BBT,
FHN, and FULT. These free reports can be seen for free at
