As the U.S. government prepares to reveal the results of stress tests to asses the ability of the nation’s largest 19 banks to cope with worse-than-expected financial conditions, worries continue about the sustainability of recent better-than-expected results from banks.

Bank of America reported a big increase in troubled loans, and shares of Citigroup tumbled after analysts at Goldman Sachs said credit losses at the bank continued to grow at a rapid rate.

Regulators closed banks on Friday in Missouri and Nevada, bringing the total of U.S. bank failures this year to 25 and matching the number that failed throughout all of 2008, as the struggling economy and falling home prices take their toll on financial institutions.

The following is a list of U.S. bank failures so far this year, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Details about each bank closure are posted at the FDIC website.
