Where can I find the FDIC Bank Watch List?
It is very difficult to pin down on the list of “at risk” banks. The FDIC probably has its list of banks they that will generate bank runs if they were ever to publish that list. Many people have claimed that list to include as many as 2000+ banks, roughly 25% of the total number of banks insured by the FDIC.
I have recently seen a list that looks pretty promising, published by http://www.moneyeconomics.com. They claim that there were 171 banks ranked very poor according to their scoring algorithm. They further claim that there are 940 banks total at risk, which is quite a bit lower than the other claims of 2000+ banks.
