16/12/2012: A Bucket of the Bad with a Pinch of the Ugly

I wanted to post this chart for some time now, but kept forgetting about it. The chart comes from RBS research on banks from November 2012 and is based on data through Q3 2012.

The interesting bits - beyond the overall apparent weakness of the European banks, as highlighted in the headline, is which banks are the weakest. Basically: Mediobanca leads, with Danske and Banco Popolare in second. Which brings us to the irony of Danske's latest marketing push for becoming a bank for the 'New Normal' (see here). Oh, the irony...
