Regional Bank stocks are garbage...



February 24, 2010 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: EWBC , NPBC.DL , FULT

As people usually don't seem to like my "Regional Banks are HOT" posts, I though I probably need a different kind of post title to get people to agree with me...

OK, here are the facts:

Once again, all reg. bank stocks from the list I made on Jan. 22, 2010 are in the green.


FMBI is up 5.2%

WBS up 4.5%

EWBC up 3.9%

NPBC up 3.9%

FULT up 3.4%

CVBF up 2.9%

FITB up 2.9%

STBA up 2.9%

RF up 2.1%

PACW up 1.5%

(S&P up 0.9%)

well it was the most beat down sector in the crash so with great risk comes great reward or going to zero.I'm sure 1 of those might be up 1000 percent in the next 5 years.

And my one and only pick in this sector of yuckiness was PrivateBancorp... and thats up 31% since Jan 22nd, although I would have sold out (and I did in the UltraLong portfolio) when it was up 37% because that's just how I roll.....

Don't regional banks generally have a higher percentage of their balance sheets in commercial real estate?
