   7 Bank Stocks I Wouldn’t Touch With a 10-Foot Pole  2023/05/26 10:15:18 InvestorPlace
Not all bank stocks are bad ones. Finding some gems out there is certainly possible, but I won’t be beating down the bushes looking for opportunities in the banking sector. These days there’s more to dislike about bank stocks than there is to appreciate them. Regional bank stocks are depressed because of the Silicon Valley Bank failure . That exposed some other weaknesses in the sector and made regional bank stocks a losing bet. But there are other reasons to give bank stocks the side eye right now. Banks are heavily reliant on the economy. They need people to have confidence in the economy and be willing to spend and borrow. Yes, credit card debt continues to rise, and the American consumer is resilient. You also can’t ignore the debt ceiling debate in Washington and be concerned about how the U.S. defaulting on its obligations would be disastrous. Besides what it would do to the stock market, such a downturn would surely hurt credit quality and trigger more defaults. That would hurt bank stocks and their bottom lines.

   : PacWest stock soars again toward 3-week high, to help fuel gains in the regional bank sector  2023/05/23 11:45:00 MarketWatch
Shares of PacWest Bancorp PACW shot up 16.1% toward a three-week high in premarket trading Tuesday, and helped fuel a broader rally for the regional bank sector. PacWest’s stock extends the recent surge, including Monday’s 19.6% jump after the bank unveiled a plan to sell $2.6 billion worth of loans, and a 49.9% run up over the past four sessions. D.A. Davidson analyst Gary Tenner reiterated his neutral rating on the stock but boosted his price target by 167%, to $8 from $3. Tenner said the loans sale furthers the bank’s progress in refocusing on its core, community bank business, “and away from non-core, non-deposit national transactions.” The SPDR S&P Regional Banking exchange-traded fund KRE rose 0.8% ahead of Tuesday’s open, also toward a three-week high. Among the ETF’s more-active components, shares of Western Alliance Bancorp WAL climbed 3.9%, of First Horizon Corp. FHN advanced 3.1% and of Zions Bancorporation ZION tacked on 3.0%.

   Dow falls, Nasdaq rises as ahead of US debt ceiling talks  2023/05/23 00:01:00 The Sun Daily
NEW YORK: Wall Street stocks were mixed at the end of Monday''s (May 22) session ahead of White House negotiations with Republican leaders to avert a US debt default. After a weekend of near deadlock, President Joe Biden arrived back in Washington late Sunday, ahead of the US Treasury''s June 1 deadline for Congress to authorise more borrowing. Talks were to resume on Monday night. “The base case is still for a debt deal to be reached, but the risk of a default is still on the table,” said market Oanda Edward Moya, adding that such an outcome would mean “an immediate plunge towards bear market territory.” The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished down 0.4% at 33,286.58. The broad-based S&P 500 was flat at 4,192.66, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.5% to 12,720.78. “Investors are basically saying, ‘We’re giving at least a 60:40 likelihood that they will come to an agreement in time’,” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA Research. “An agreement could simply be the extension, kicking it down the road to decide on a debt ceiling when they also discuss the budgets in September.” Amid the debt talks, US central bank policy remained in focus.
