The year has started off slowly: Only 4 closings the first half of January. Expect FDIC to pick up the pace…

Wow….huge night….$14.5 billion in combined assets from tonight’s failures. The biggest fish is First Fed, with $6.1 billion of assets. First Fed was the last of the big option ARM lenders. Seems like FDIC wants to get a lot off its plate before the holidays…
