Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In 2021

Bank stocks have taken a beating this year. Over the last six months, the Financial Sector SPDR Fund (NYSE: XLF) is down nearly 10% as volatility and global trade fears sapped investor confidence.

You see, many investors expected rising interest rates and the 2017 tax reform law to drive the financial sector to consistent highs in 2018. However, unfavorable trends in global trade and increased volatility have kept bank stocks from realizing their real profit potential.

Over the last week, XLF jumped over 3% as financial giants like Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) and Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC) blew away Wall Street’s estimates and delivered stellar earnings reports.
