Big Banks

I spent a little time using Google this morning to see if I could easily find data on the strength of U. S. financial institutions. I did not find a single source that provided consistent data. The table below is a first start towards creating such a comparison. Does this seem like a meaningful approach, and, if so, how can we find the missing data ?
