LONDON,  March 14, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

The Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at record low levels since the
financial crisis to boost economic growth. While low interest rates are
benefiting the economy, it has resulted in increasing margin pressure for
regional banks. However, record low interest rates have boosted lending
activity, which is benefiting regional banks such as BB&T Corporation (NYSE:
BBT), Synovus Financial Corp. (NYSE: SNV), Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE:
RF), First Horizon National Corporation (NYSE: FHN), and Fulton Financial Corp.
(NASDAQ: FULT). On Wednesday, regional bank stocks ended mostly higher tracking
gains in the broad market. StockCall has released full comprehensive research on
BBT, SNV, RF, FHN, and FULT and these free technical analyses can be downloaded
