An Update on Bank Stocks: Bank of America and Citigroup


There is no reason to own more than one money center bank.


MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL This morning Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) broke out to a yearly high of $10.22. My firm alerted Minyanville readers back on August 23 to buy this name as it went to a Strong Buy. Bank of America has been the strongest money center bank based on our proprietary indicator, and it is the only bank rated a Strong Buy (5). We can hypothesize that money is flowing into BAC as housing related stocks and housing derivatives like Home Depot (NYSE:HD) are becoming extended and richly valued.

In other banking news this morning, Citigroup (NYSE:C) announced that it will be cutting 11,000 jobs, moving the stock 3.82% higher. We would recommend reducing exposure if you own this name and swap into BAC. There is no reason to own more than one money center bank.
