The article presents a study of the indicators of weaknesses in the economic performances of financial institutions between 2006 and 2010. It examines indicators including return on average assets, non-performing loans, and equity to assets to explore the impact of economic downturn on banks, thrifts and banks with Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Results show that basic weaknesses in financial institutions occurred in late 2008 and did not begin a slow economic recovery in 2010.
