Synovus Financial, Regions Financial, and Discover Financial Services are all set to report earnings this week. Synovous and Regions, both banks focused on the Southeastern part of the U.S., have been trying to clean up their balance sheets and get back to the basics of banking. On the other hand, Discover has been firing on all cylinders and has been active entering new markets.
