I happen to like BBT over the next few years, but i could see investing in those.BAC or C may be the best bet for a 1 year trade. But I'm chicken. Bock bock.JPM up about
ignore that last "JPM up about". Also, i know that's just past returns, and says nothing of tangible book, leverage, loan loss provisions, direction of past due loan pct, loan growth, OREO, deposit growth, etc.
Nice job. Great reality check.
