Tim Seymour: Short These 2 Overseas Banks As Bets Against Italy

Investors slammed bank stocks on Tuesday after a relatively strong performance last week.

Largely investors ran for the exits after S&P said France’s plan to roll over Greek debt would constitute a temporary default, again calling into question the potential ripple effect among banks.

Trader Tim Seymour is very concerned about developments in Europe - particularly Italy. “Italian CDS were 7% wider by the end of Tuesday’s trade. Banco Santander and Deutsche Bank are the names to short," he says.

However, that's not to say the traders are bearish across the board. They're not.

Because of the clarity in debit card swipe fees from our central bank, trader Joe Terranova is bullish Mastercard , Visa, Discovery Financial and Capital One.

Pete Najarian is most focused on Visa. He spotted bullish option action in this stock “all the way up to the 95-strike.”

As you may remember, last week the Federal Reserve issued final rules on debit card swipe fees; allowing banks to charge up to 22 cents per debit card transaction, 10 cents more than a cap that was proposed in September.
