Favorable Federal Reserve stress test results are a better omen for Citigroup than other U.S. bank giants, CNBC "Fast Money" trader Tim Seymour said.
"I think they have the most to gain," said Seymour, who is long in the stock.
On Thursday, all 31 tested banks got favorable marks in the Fed's annual test. It gauges how well the banks can withstand a hypothetical economic shock.
The result bodes well for Citigroup, which failed to meet requirements last year, Seymour said. Citigroup closed Thursday slightly down, around $53 per share.
It also re-affirmed his confidence in Bank of America, in which he holds a long stake.
Trader Brian Kelly liked Bank of America stock, as well, because it was cheaper than many other banks coming in.
"A lot of these banks had a tremendous run coming into this," he said.
Bank of America closed Thursday 1 percent higher around $16 per share. Trader Karen Finerman also expressed confidence in the stock, as she has a long stake in it.
Trader Guy Adami looked at U.S. Bancorp, saying it has "been the most conservative along the way."
