Capital Market Laboratories covers more than 1,000 industry specific measures.

Today we will look at the "Big Four," which I argue in a full article soon to be published on Benzinga are in fact the Big 3 and then WFC.

There are a lot (a lot) of industry specific details and measures that make WFC look quite different than the rest of the big four.  In this case, let's just get a taste and plot total assets on the x-axis and non-performing assets on the y-axis.

We can see two phenomena:
1. WFC has larger non-performing assets than the rest of the big four.
2. WFC has smaller total assets than the rest of the big four, which makes the non-performing number even more of an outlier.

Look for the full article on Benzinga soon.
