NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I have been analyzing the publicly traded FDIC-insured financial institutions since early 2006. I began my studies a year earlier focusing on the housing market and home builder stocks. I correctly called the top for the builders in mid-2005, and then turned my attention to the community and regional banks. I began to warn about all banks in April 2006 and community banks began to fall like dominoes at the end of 2006 with the money center and regional banks crumbling beginning in February 2007.Since the stock market bottom in March 2009 I have been dissecting the FDIC Quarterly Banking Profiles tracking the improvements in the banking system, but also warning that the Great Credit Crunch is not yet over.
