Are Banks in trouble or not?

Link to Article: FDIC: US bank deposits dropped by most in 39 years to start 2023 Are Banks in trouble or not? If you do not have time to read the entire article, please allow me to extract and apply the relevant.

"US banks lost $472 billion in deposits in the first quarter, according to a new quarterly report from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)."

We need another data point for perspective.

"The deposit decline was the largest since the FDIC began collecting quarterly industry data in 1984 and marked the fourth consecutive quarter of industry outflows."

What does this mean for the banking sector?

"The number of banks on the FDIC's "problem list" increased by four to 43, and assets held by banks on that list rose to $58 billion."

Forty-three sounds like a big number, how does it compare?

"That list swelled into the hundreds during the industry's last big crisis which began in 2008."

Not so bad, why sound the alarm now?

"What was also clear from the FDIC's new report is that a core measure of profitability declined during the first quarter as interest rates rose and depositors began moving their money elsewhere."

Most financial firms are experiencing declines, still not really a fire alarm.

"The industry also ended the quarter with a sizable amount of unrealized losses on securities held by banks. But that amount, $515 billion, was down 16.5% from the prior quarter."

Wait, better than last quarter!

Another great headline, but definitely not the full narrative. Remember my friends, if you are going to read a headline, read the entire story before reaching a conclusion. If you do not have time, I got you covered.
