    Q4 prelim numbers

    Although Q4 is not out yet, you can see the interim reports for CBCR component banks such as Michigan Commerce at the FDIC web site. The report shows a 20 mil Q4 loss for Michigan Commerce (ouch) but an increase in capital levels at MI as the holding company injected 26 mil. I didn't check other component banks yet.

    My guess is that Q4 is looking like a "cleanup quarter". CBCR raised some capital from bank sales and probably wrote down bad loans aggressively in Q4 in an effort to show a Q1 profit.

    It's mixed news. Capital levels are off the 2% critical point a bit, but they still need to make progress on the earnings front. It's also possible IMO that they are cleaning up the MI balance sheet in preparation to sell it.
