    how will PNC make money

    There are many on this board that know far more about financial institutions than I do so perhaps you all can help me. How are banks going to make money going forward? Dodd-Frank and the increase in capital reserves that banks must hold appear to me to be a problem. The fact that most banks are still reticent to loan money and/or there is no demand seems problematic too. This low interest environment will certainly continue for the next few years if the Fed has its way. I don't know. My broker has me in this stock and I was adverse to buying it. Not because of this regional bank in particular but because it's a bank. Any comments would be welcome.

    • The cost of money from the Fed is essentially zero and the loans that they are making earn a lot more than zero. That's a pretty nice return on investment. Banks are being forced to lend conservatively, but that means that the likelihood that they will collect on those loans is high.

      The entire financial sector was down today. Some of that is more Greek problems.

      • The " buy and hold " crowd is suffering another wasted year , " O's " re-election forged the deal !!! Doesn't look like I'll have to worry about increased tax on capital gains ........
        I thought $75 / $80 was doable at $67 / $68 , not now , $15 + back is a mountain in this environment ........ As said many times , PNC can't stand prosperity , only status quo and
        naming buildings seems in their wheelhouse !!! Might as well ride back down and await the 5 year clawback , some things never change with this outfit ........ Maybe some retirements would help ........
