Financial sector Margins squeezed

credit of the month


Ryan O’Connell

ABN Amro

Banks: marketweight

Brokers: overweight

Our top picks for the financial sector are JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Goldman Sachs (GS), based on their fundamentals and current bond valuations. We also like Lehman (LEH) and Wachovia (WB), which we think have good momentum in their key business lines, but their bonds seem fairly valued to us. We would buy them on any price concession for a new issue or any weakness in pricing.
