    This bank has got to be a consideration for being acquired or at a minimum, a merger.

    The anticipation of a divvy jack should put us back in the 20s again.

    RF should increase div by 10% as current payout ratio is only 27%. Div should be 74 cents minimum.

    Increase in dividend to be considered for 3rd qtr. Nothing definite so we'll have to wait & see if it happens.

    After passing the Fed's stress tests, the large banks have started raising dividends. Since the regionals all passed with flying colors, they should also raise theirs between now and Q2 earnings reports.

    FED released the results of their 2nd Bank Stress Tests after market close today. Results were very good, banks are generally well capitalized to withstand any loan defaults. The restriction on Bank share buybacks was lifted but buyback amount cannot exceed trailing 12 month earnings. Great news for banks, especially those with solid earnings. Most banks up big in after-hours trading.

    Banking stocks all down, Warren buffet bought into this sector, says sector is under valued.

    Exactly, he is making an assumption. RF's financials do not depict increasing loan losses. RF is operating well in their footprint. I hope the share buyback is picking up these shares on this dip. And we should get another generous dividend increase next Spring.

    I usually never get caught up in the hype/speculations of buyouts...but today's news released by RF is great news. Eliminating debt is a good thing! And now we have Barron's suggesting PNC might be looking to take out RF. Add to that, the ex-dividend date is coming up in a couple weeks. I wouldn't be surprised to see RF back in the $11's by end of May.

    I read the Barrons article & it is the typical short general type that they use to fill up their weekly paper.
    Of the hundreds of regional banks, they only have 6 targets & 5 buyers? No buyout price targets or estimated time frames? The only buyers that seem to have the size & capital to merge/acquire are the two canadian banks. The other 3 are much smaller than the targets.
    There will be regional bank consolidation in due time, just need more USA financial stability & clarity first.
    No one can place a value on a bank currently due to a lack of forward guidance for earnings & loan defaults.
    Barrons mentioned 263 mergers last year (approx 5 per week). The vast majority involved tiny banks that we've never even heard of, not banks like RF, CFG, SNV, TCF.

    RF & nearly all bank stocks are down for past 2 days because the 10-year treasury yields are going down.
    Even banks with decent Q4 earnings reports are down. RF Q4 earnings were good, but forward 2021 guidance not so hot. This is the pattern that most banks have been reporting for 2020 Q4.
    RF is a well run regional bank that will do just fine in time, but banks in general may stall at these levels until interest rates improve & COVID is under control. Remember that most banks are up 40+% since end of September & there is bound to be some profit taking.
