Best Bank Stocks To Buy Now That Fed Has Given Green Light For Dividends

On Wednesday, the Fed said banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co and Bank of America Corp, had passed the second, more demanding part of its yearly stress test. The results demonstrated that many haven’t only built up adequate capital buffers, but improved risk management processes too. Charts of the best bank stocks to buy now are below.

It was the first time in years of annual “stress tests” that each bank assessed by the Fed won approval for its capital strategies.

Fed Governor Jerome Powell, who’s acting as regulatory guide for the U.S. central bank, said the process has inspired all the largest banks to attain good capital levels.

The Fed on Wednesday announced the results of the second round of its yearly stress tests. Those permitted to increase dividends or repurchase shares contain the four largest U.S. banks — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. These large banks are the best bank stocks to buy now.

Following the results today, numerous banks quickly jumped in with announcements of dividend boosts and share buyback plans.

The second part of this seventh annual check-up tested the banks to decide if their existing plans for paying out capital to shareholders would still let them keep lending if hit by another financial crisis and serious recession.

Banks have a total of approximately $1.2 trillion in capital reserves as of the fourth quarter of this past year, an increase of $750 billion over 2009. They’re expected to pay out to shareholders 100 percent of the net revenue during the next four quarters, compared with 65 percent in the same period last year.

Best Bank Stocks To Buy Now

Bullish Pocket Pivot pattern on June 28, 2017. Feels a little like chasing at this level. I would prefer to wait for a consolidation move before taking a swing long entry.

Powerful breakout move but chasing breakouts is a losers strategy. I would prefer to wait for a pullback at least a consolidation period before taking a long entry.

I like the sideways consolidation pattern in Bank of America. We also had a bullish Pocket Pivot signal on June 28, 2017.

Wells Fargo has major resistance at $55. An entry above this level is prudent. The Twiggs Money Flow is just starting to round up so it has less of a chasing feel to it.

I will keep hunting for the best bank stocks to buy now.


US Banks To Be Decapitated If Brexit

If you are looking for a black swan event that could plunge the weak US economy into a full-blown recession, Brexit could be it.

Big US banks have already taken brutal losses over the last year.

Bank of America has more than $2.1 trillion in assets. Bank of Amerca’s stock has plunged -20% from a year ago.

Citigroup has more than $1.8 trillion in assets. Its stock is down a shocking -23% over the last year.

Wells Fargo’s has more than $1.8 trillion in assets. Its stock has crashed more than -15% over the last 12 months.

Major banks in the U.S. are in trouble as a result of years worth of low-interest rates. The Federal Reserve has been trying its best to raise rates to prop up falling bank profits.

With so many U.S. banks on the edge of the precipice, a Brexit could push them over the edge.
