I trust it as much as I would trust any corp balance sheet.

It pays to do your own due diligence. Look at their number of new accounts or new households. Look at their balance growth. Look at their lending to small businesses. These days, look at the customer service scores (an indication of the willingness of people to look past fees to keep their relationship).

All those can be strong indicators of a health and likely accurate balance sheet.
