Bank Shots. Rates Play Rim Protector.

APRIL, 6, 2019. Buckle your couch belts for all the excitement. It’s simultaneously time for both the Final Four, and Earnings Season. Did your bank transfer? “Survive and move on” remains the way. Please be advised. No shortage of Cinderellas or shilling money managers exists now. And once again, none will fail to foul or front for their favorite financial.
It’s make believe time all over again. Super-heated gases will leak forth from your screens. Back up., content and advertising will meld. Trash will be talked. This smear of nonsense will end only after earnings are done, the nets are cut down, or CNBC finally bloats into a purely promotional gas giant.

No real love exits for our big banks, going no where fast. We’ve seen the Youtube vid of shareholders falling instantly to sleep when suddenly exposed to a bank earnings report. On comes the carousel of more money managers broadcasting more bank “attractiveness.”
STOCKjAW takes a look. What’s the bank performance truth, and benchmark reality? The benchmarks and the players all have scores, and the reality stands clear, right here. More pool-party bank summer fun. Continue reading Big Banks. Testimony Of The Tape.
