On a point and figure basis, from the viewpoint of a financial advisor, are Financial stocks — and possibly the entire financial sector — the modern day Lazarus, rising from the dead? What does this mean for a fee only investment advisor in New Jersey?
This entire sector of financial stocks has been left for dead by the side of the road for well over three years. But their recent action is making us pay attention. We do not know if this is merely a bump along the way lower, or the start of something a little more positive. As in all cases, when the charts change, we will change.
But here is the most important take-away: some of these charts are starting to move back in positive trends. And the market has continued to move higher in recent months WITHOUT the participation of financial company shares.
If the financial stocks sector is truly re-awakening, this market could — emphasize could — have a longer run ahead of it.
In this video, we take a quick peek at the charts of the following companies:
Bank of America (BAC)
JP Morgan (JPM)
Morgan Stanley (MS)
Goldman Sachs (GS)
Barclays PLC (BCS)
BB & T (BBT)
Wells Fargo (WFC)
PNC Financial (PNC)
NY Community Bank (NYB)
Bank of NY/Mellon (BK)
Banco Santander (STD)
