Here are some statistics from the FDIC for the second quarter 2010:

There were 45 bank failures in the second quarter, and we likely ended the quarter with less than 7,900 FDIC-insured financial institutions.

  • 2,504, or 31.7%, are thus overexposed to commercial real estate loans.

  • 3,939, or 49.9% of all banks, have a pipeline that's 80% or more funded.

Half the community banks in America remain overleveraged to commercial real estate and the possible losses remain about $1.5 trillion.

Assets among banks with a CRE pipeline of 80% or more funded increased to $3.84 trillion, including $121.3 billion in construction-and-development loans.

The average pipeline for 3,939 banks is 92.0%. Among this list are four big banks that will likely see waves of write-offs in upcoming quarters.

  • JPMorgan Chase (JPM) with $1.72 trillion in assets has a pipeline of 80%.

  • SunTrust Banks (STI) has $160.5 billion in assets with an 83% pipeline.

  • BB&T Corp (BBT) has $149.2 billion in assets with an 84% pipeline.

  • Fifth Third Bank (FITB) has 100.0 billion in assets with an 84% pipeline.
