    I think Wells Fargo must have a death wish, I wonder what Warren Buffett thinks about this massive increase in commercial mortgages as we sail into the commercial mortgage hurricane of the fall and spring.

  2. constantnormal says:

    I guess maybe Wells Fargo is not so bad off as I initially thought, as CRE only amounts to about 10% of their total loans and liens — but why lean into the punch?

    And looking down the list at those who have a LOT larger fraction of their loan portfolios in CRE, Barclays, Comerica and Huntington are all scrambling to dump CRE, and still have it in the area of 20% of their loan portfolio.

    Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark …

    I am astounded that banks have learned so little. What are these people thinking? Are they listening to the residential real estate equivalent of the NAR? I am not and will not ever be long the financials but why would anyone own stock in these compnaies?

  5. patfla says:

    I assume that Well’s 162% y-on-y growth in commercial mortgages is just another aspect of the Wachovia debacle. For which I’m not sure they’re completely to blame. My assumption is that Merill was ‘pushed’ into BofA’s arms and Wachovia into Wells. Thus putting relatively more sound institutions into jeopardy.

    Was this bad money driving out good?

  6. Moss says:

    The duration is more important than outstanding. For all we know WFC bought a lot of distressed loans back in March. No wonder the Fed will be propping up this market.

  7. emmanuel117 says:

    Ouch, Metlife!

  8. Pat G. says:

    Of the 150 financial institutions listed only 24 or 16% of them actually reduced their exposure to CRE loans y-o-y. Which means that the other 126 or 84% actually increased their exposure to CRE loans while the U.S. economy was cratering and shedding 4.9M jobs. Incredible stupidity. And on average, the top five added 73.5% in CRE loans to that which they already owned during that period and skirted the morale hazard issue by establishing themselves as TBTF. Take note USG; your chain is being jerked.

  9. jc says:

    Metlife is not “too big to fail” right?

    WFC has all those HELOCS and second morts and this too?

    I don’t doubt the US will do something drastic – like buy foreclosures from the big banks at above market prices to support the big banks and the residential markets in CA and FL but it looks like they will have to do something for the malls and office parks that the banks will own.

  10. vachon says:

    These increases seem so incredible, I have to ask a dumb question: how much of them are due to formerly off-book items being brought on board? Sure, there have been some M&As going on (wanted and not) but that can’t be the only explanation. We’re talking universal-class teh stupid here.

  11. monmick says:

    Wow! I didn’t realize TDBanknorth had this much exposure! So much for safe Canadian banks…

  12. Onlooker from Troy says:

    Pat G.

    Can you say “moral hazard?” FDIC insurance and other fed govt backstops just encourages risky behavior.

  13. Pat G. says:

    @ Onlooker

    Yep. Makes corporations and consumers believe they are like Superman (bullet-proof).

  14. torrie-amos says:

    Wonder what % are foreclosures that they now own themselves and have no choice, ie, cannot sell.

  15. GraffitiGrammarian says:

    Could the increase be due to accounting procedures?

    Maybe the banks lobbied for accounting rule changes that would let them put the par value of the loans on their books, whereas a year ago they were putting the market value of the loans on their books.

    Anyway, I don’t think banks have been adding that much new inventory in terms of CRE loans, so the explanation is not new lending activity. At least not that much new lending activity.

    In some cases, as with wells fargo and BofA, the inflation is likely due to merger activity, as other posters noted above. But there must be some other reason for the banks that didn’t take over other institutions.
