Bank stocks were on a tear Thursday.
The SPDR Bank ETF (KBE) rose 4.06 percent and hit its highest level since September 2008 on the back of a sharp rally in financials.
The sector has led the benchmark S&P 500 for two days in a row following the shocking victory by Republican Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential election. The surge in financials has been attributed, in part, to the possibility of deregulation within the sector under a Trump presidency.
As of Thursday's close, financials were up 11.29 percent year-to-date and were among the five best-performing sectors for 2016.
