Best Financial Stocks To Buy Right Now: Wells Fargo & Company(WFC)
- [By Ben Levisohn]
Big banks like JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Bank of America (BAC) have surged more than 20% during the past three months–causing many investors to doubt the possibility for further gains. I’m note one of them–after my disastrous financials call last year, I’m bullish on them in 2017–and neither is Morgan Stanley’s Betsy Graseck, who remains Overweight the big banks, despite their big gains.

- [By Ben Levisohn]
Bank stocks have rallied since Donald Trump’s election victory–even Wells Fargo (WFC), which had been hit hard by its cross selling scandal. It’s not hard to see why: Higher rates and better economic growth should be good news for ones that have been in the penalty box.

Wells Fargo. The company remains in the penalty box near term (e.g., possible legal accruals add to 4Q16 risk), but we view Wells Fargos reputational risk as manageable and expect the rollout of new retail banking sales incentives and the redeployment of its ~$224bn of excess liquidity (held at the Fed as of 3Q16) into higher-yielding loans to serve as positive catalysts later in the year. By our math, each $5bn redeployed into 5-year USTs yielding ~2% would drive incremental EPS of $0.01, with the upside from redeploying into higher-yielding loans even more meaningful.
Shares of Wells Fargo have gained 1.1% to $54.84 at 2:22 p.m. today, while the SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) has risen 0.8% to $43.73.
