They have the conservative practices of Wells Fargo with the customer service of... well they have some of the best customer service in the banking industry (Certainly better than WFC). Despite the poor Q4 (Which was still profitable), they managed to increase their yearly net profit by about 3.2% and their book value by a whopping 9.2%. With shareholder equity at $61.52 per common share and strong earnings confidence from leadership, there is no reason to avoid PNC if you're into financials at all. This isn't even counting the strong performance of Blackrock(BLK)'s fundamentals.
