Banco Santander is the #1 bank in Europe with strong presence in Latin America, United Kingdom, Brazil, and Argentina. The bank suffered great loses post the financial crisis (considering bulk of operations were concentrated in Europe) and thus, stock price dropped in to single digits.

Despite the storm, SAN has been making great progress in gaining back is strength as a bank and has demonstrated this by reporting healthy financials through the past several quarters. The bank's full recovery seems slow and steady but I can see it turn around entirely in the coming years (in a positive direction). A dividend yield of over 6% doesn't hurt either!!!

They remain competitive within their industry and will be around for a very long time. I see this bank as the "citigroup" of Europe in terms of scale (minus all the negative connotations associated with it).

While tagged as "Spanish/European" bank this is effectively a global bank with considerable presence in S. America. The management is far more effective than its US peers and the expense ration is one of the best in the industry.

European securities are cheaper than the United States' after 2013. Santander has incredibly good management. Spain double dipped into the recession, so the recovery is still young, I (optimistically) see it as USA in late 2010. Big money bets by Gates and Buffett went into Spain about a year and a half ago, Gates bought a huge stake in a construction company, Buffett bought one in a Spanish bank (CaixaBank). I like the chart of EWP (Spanish index etf--SAN is actually biggest holding). 8% dividend yield, EIGHT percent, and this stock has way more upside than any 8% yielder that I know of. They have exposure to Latin American emerging markets that have been beaten down for a couple years and are finally on the upswing. WORST case scenario--it trades sideways and you make 8%, will the S&P 500 even pick up 8% by year end?

This stock has found it's bottom and is currently on the rise. It's a financial stock, an industry which has been lagging the market and is just now starting to bounce back. It's the largest bank in Europe and I can see it easily out performing the market over the next few years, particularly since the markets have already been on quite a tear this year and are likely to cool a bit next year. Oh yeah, and then there is that nice dividend.

Priced below its book value per share. PEG ratio is attractive. Good dividend. The Eurozone is in recovery mode.

Dragged down by the Euro problems and Spain's own internal problems, SAN keeps quietly expanding and shoring up its reserves.
Been accumulating for well over a year and collecting tax-free (for now, haha) dividends via their scrip program. A dividend cut is unanticipated, but never say never!
I'm out at 12.

Banco Santander is branching out it holds the financial market in South America and Mexico, Poland and Spain is branching north into england, This bank has the opportunity to become competitive and surpass Banco de Bilbao as the international financial institute. Banco Santander should see an increase in stock movement by early September with new strategies in real estate lending and a decrease in Unemployment

Pays nice 8% + dividend, and it's a Jeff Fischer favorite megacap. Also recommended by Christine Quiñones of Great West 401-K plan.

The following is derived primarily from Fool Bloggers. SAN is diversified both in it's variety of financial services and global locations. While many discounted SAN based on a misperception that SAN was a pure EURO/Spain issue entangled in the unwinding of the EURO Zone. SAN actual capitol exposure to EURO/Spain is reported to be 20% of total capital. Unlike many Multinational Banks SAN has squared away it's Real Estate ledger. SAN pays a dividend approaching 10% with a PE hovering around 9. SAN's actual business is in profitable emerging markets such as Brazil. Disclosure: I do not own SAN but have been following it closely for some time.

Closed and re-opened to more accurately reflect my actual start price.

Bought more on this "Cyprus Overshoot", and have all I want for now.

There has been a lot of "negative speculation" about Spanish banks lately, but SAN and BBVA are "solid" and in no danger of getting nationalized.

SAN took care of the majority of their loan loss reserves on their Spanish real estate in 2012, so should not have any big surprises relating to capital adequacy coming up.

Spain itself will continue to have "challenges" in the intermediate term, but are not about to do what Cyprus had to do, which was due more to the fact that their "banking system" was very "oversized" in comparison to their economy (which of course had major problems of its' own).

In the intermediate term SAN could have some more ups and downs, but in the longer term will likely be a multi-bagger from here.

JMO and worth exactly what I am charging for it.
