NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Now that the full set of second-quarter regulatory data is available, six more banks and thrifts have joined TheStreet's Watch List of undercapitalized institutions.
The list is based on second-quarter regulatory data supplied by SNL Financial on September 7 for the nation's 7,800 banks and savings and loan associations. Removing any failed banks from the list, 158 were undercapitalized, according to the regulatory guidelines that apply to most institutions.

Some trust banks carry lower capital requirements. The ratios need to be at least 4%, 4%, and 8% for most to be considered adequately capitalized.
