However, we expect this trend to reverse as the market doesn't seem to appreciate: 1) positive momentum from legacy PNC, with commercial loans up 15% sequential annualized ex. RBC; 2) solid EPS accretion from the RBC deal; and 3) that PNC is likely on the sidelines in the M&A arena for the next 12-18mos as it rebuilds Basel III capital ratios."
