Huntington Bancshares Inc. (HBAN) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2010-09-30. Huntington Bancshares Inc. has a market cap of $4.09 billion; its shares were traded at around $5.66 with and P/S ratio of 1.3. The dividend yield of Huntington Bancshares Inc. stocks is 0.7%.

HBAN is in the portfolios of Arnold Schneider of Schneider Capital Management, HOTCHKIS & WILEY of HOTCHKIS & WILEY Capital Management LLC, Diamond Hill Capital of Diamond Hill Capital Management Inc, Bruce Kovner of Caxton Associates, Steven Cohen of SAC Capital Advisors, Chuck Royce of Royce& Associates.

Highlight of Business Operations:

For the quarter, we reported net income of $100.9 million, or $0.10 per common share, compared with $48.8 million, or $0.03 per common share, in the prior quarter (see Table 1). Total revenue for the 2010 third quarter was $679.7 million, up 1% from the prior quarter driven by a $10.4 million, or 3%, increase in fully-taxable equivalent net interest income. However, noninterest expense increased $13.5 million, or 3%, from the prior quarter resulting primarily from continued implementation of our strategic initiatives via investments in people, product expansion, and distribution designed to grow revenues and improve long-term profitability.

Credit quality performance in the current quarter continued to show improvement as nonperforming assets (NPAs) and net charge-offs (NCOs) declined and reserve coverage increased. This improvement reflected the benefits of our focused actions taken in 2009 to address credit-related issues. Compared with the prior quarter, NPAs declined 30%. NCOs were $184.5 million, or an annualized 1.98% of average total loans and leases, down from $279.2 million, or 3.01%, in the 2010 second quarter. While the period end allowance for credit losses (ACL) as a percentage of loans and leases was 3.67%, down from 3.90% at June 30, 2010, the ACL as a percentage of total nonaccrual loans (NALs) increased to 140% from 120%.

At the end of the prior quarter, we transferred all remaining Franklin-related loans to loans held-for-sale at a lower of cost or fair value of $323.4 million which resulted in 2010 second quarter NCOs of $75.5 million. During the current quarter, the remaining Franklin-related loans were sold at essentially book value. As a result, the only Franklin-related assets remaining at September 30, 2010 were $15.3 million of other-real-estate-owned (OREO) properties, which have been written down to the lower of cost or fair value less cost to sell.

Our period-end capital position remained solid with increases in all of our capital ratios. At September 30, 2010, our regulatory Tier 1 and Total risk-based capital were $2.9 billion and $2.2 billion, respectively, above the “well-capitalized” regulatory thresholds. Our tangible common equity ratio improved 8 basis points to 6.20% and our Tier 1 common risk-based capital ratio improved 33 basis points to 7.39% from June 30, 2010.
