Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc Has £800m More Than It Thought It Had

The good news keeps coming from Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE: RBS) (NYSE: RBS.US), which has followed up a recent surge in profitability with more good news about some less bad loans. While it is still exposed to an economic hiccup — and the threat of large fines — this positive trend suggests a big discount to book value is look ever less tenable.

The Motley Fool's top analysts believe that only a handful of FTSE 100 companies will actually make big gains this year, so I highly recommend that you read their report into Where We Believe The Smart Money Is Going In 2014.
