07:38 EDTPNCPNC Financial sees Q4 EPS exceeding First Call mean estimate of $1.57
The PNC Financial Services Group took the following actions in Q4 associated with its residential mortgage banking activities along with other items. The net impact of these actions will reduce PNCís Q4 net income by approximately 47c per diluted common share. PNC recorded $91M of expenses related to residential mortgage foreclosure activities, which includes a charge of approximately $70M resulting from an agreement to amend the consent orders entered into in April 2011. PNC recorded a pretax provision of $254M for residential mortgage repurchase obligations related to expected elevated levels of repurchase demands primarily as a result of further changes in behavior and demand patterns of government-sponsored enterprises, FHLMC and FNMA, for loans sold into agency securitizations, including the years 2004 and 2005. PNC recorded a noncash, nontax-deductible goodwill impairment charge of $45M in Q4 related to its Residential Mortgage Banking segment, which had no goodwill remaining at December 31. PNC recorded a pretax gain of $130M on the sale of a portion of its investment in Visa, or 4 million Visa Class B common shares. PNC recorded $35M of pretax integration costs and $70M of pretax noncash charges for the remarketing and redemption of high cost hybrid capital securities. Excluding the net impact of these actions, PNC currently expects its Q4 EPS will exceed the current First Call mean estimate of $1.57.

06:51 EDTPNCBofA doesn't deserve to be in 'stock market doghouse,' WSJ says
Bank of America (BAC) is currently in the "stock market doghouse," but doesn't deserve to be, David Reilly of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape says. The overall beating of U.S. bank stocks has come amid the greater market selloff, reflecting the fact that slowing growth has brought doubt on the Fed's ability to raise rates in March, Reilly says. Since a rate increase is a far-off prospect, investors have little reason to own bank stocks, though Bank of America's valuation assumes "too dire an outcome," the report says. Banks with international outreach, such as Citi (C), are still arguably further behind in post-crisis cleanup, but Bank of America is more focused on the domestic U.S. economy and prices a U.S. recession as a given, not a possibility, the report says. Other large U.S. banks include Wells Fargo (WFC), JPMorgan (JPM), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB), BB&T (BBT), PNC Financial (PNC), and SunTrust (STI). Reference Link

12:33 EDTPNCU.S. banks could return 20% or more, Barron's says
The banking sector looks like "one of the best bargains in the market," Barron's contends in a cover story. Names such as Citi (C), JPMorgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), BB&T (BBT), PNC Financial (PNC), SunTrust (STI) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) are showing healthy balance sheets and could offer "at least" 20% upside, the publication argues, adding that the industry's exposure to the energy sector "looks manageable" given information offered in recent earnings reports and conference calls.
