Note: this is an unofficial list of Problem Banks compiled only from public sources.

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for Oct 28, 2011. (table is sortable by assets, state, etc.)

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

The OCC finally released some information on its actions since September 23rd. This week, also, the FDIC released its actions through September. These releases contributed to many changes to the Unofficial Problem Bank List. In all, there were seven removals and 16 additions, which leaves the list with 985 institutions with assets of $406.6 billion. A year-ago, the list had 894 institutions with assets of $410.7 billion. For the month, there were 18 additions and 19 removals with 11 from failure, seven from action termination, and one unassisted merger. It was the fourth consecutive month for the list to have fewer institutions since its month-end peak of 1,001 in June, but the serial monthly decline was only a single institution.

Among the seven removals this week is the failed All American Bank, Des Plaines, IL ($38 million). Other removals were from action termination including Marathon National Bank of New York, Astoria, NY ($818 million); West Pointe Bank, Oshkosh, WI ($371 million); Ojai Community Bank, Ojai, CA ($125 million Ticker: OJCB); Parkway Bank, Rogers, AR ($116 million); Regal Financial Bank, Seattle, WA ($101 million); and First National Bank and Trust, Barron, WI ($44 million).

Among the 16 additions are United Central Bank, Garland, TX ($2.6 billion); Falcon International Bank, Laredo, TX ($841 million); Valley Community Bank, Pleasanton, CA ($196 million Ticker: VCBC); and Americas United Bank, Glendale, CA ($106 million Ticker: AUNB). It looks like the OCC issued its first formal action against a thrift on September 15 to Stephens Federal Bank, Toccoa, GA ($196 million).

Other changes include the FDIC issuing Prompt Corrective Action orders against Fidelity Bank, Dearborn, MI ($867 million Ticker: DEAR); and Heartland Bank, Leawood, KS ($129 million Ticker: MBR).
