Michael Panzner has a good post on his site about regional banks being the next front in the Credit Crisis. He mentions home equity lines (HELOCs) as a crucial piece there, referring to an article in the Financial Times. His blog entry mentions 10 banks, regional and national to scrutinise in particular: Huntington Bancshares, National City and SunTrust Bank, Countrywide Financial, Washington Mutual and First Horizon Financial, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo.
