The Bank Trade - After The Bailout


If you’re old enough to remember the original “Poseidon Adventure” then you know, “there’s got to be a morning after.”

Come to think of it, that movie resembles the current crisis in more than a few ways. I mean, the damage was pretty severe and by the end of it, not everyone survived.

But like we said up top there’s got to be a morning after and when the dawn does break, here’s how to trade.

I am a big fan of the huge asset acquiring banks, says the Pit Boss. JP Morgan, Credit Suisse , Deutsche Bank and Bank of America are all attractive.

Guy Adami

I also like banks, adds the Negotiator. The weak will get weaker and the strong will get stronger. I’d look at US Bancorp and Wells Fargo .

Jeff Macke

If you do decide to get into stocks you have to be patient. A market that is functioning well doesn’t need this kind of intervention.
