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
Nice job. Great reality check.
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.
