Bank Stocks to Buy 2012 - 2012 Bank Stocks

Bank Stocks in 2012 will be very interesting.  During the summer of 2011, we saw some of the best bank stocks fall hard due to the European Debt Crisis.  Top Bank Stocks such as Bank of America (BAC) and Citigroup (C) dropped 35-40% in a few months.  Will Bank Stocks do good in 2012?  What are some of the top bank stocks to buy for 2012?  Below, we will answer these questions by giving you some of our bank stock picks for 2012.

Top Bank Stocks 2012 - Citigroup Inc. (C) - Citigroup (C) is my top Bank Stock for 2012.  After doing a reverse stock split in May 2011, Citigroup stock dropped from $42 all the way down to $25.50.  Why did C stock drop so much?  Debt fears all around the world.  When you have such a severe banking crisis in Europe, it tends to spread into global banks all around the world.  Investing in Bank Stocks during the summer is usually a bad idea.  Bank stocks tend to rally during the second half of the year like we saw in 2009 and 2010.  Citigroup is a cheap stock on paper, trading under book value at $27 per share.  At some point in 2012, I feel Citigroup can rally back to $37-$40.  This would be a $10 move in the stock or a 35-40% gain.  Citigroup may go under $20 if the stock market takes another leg lower.  Keep an eye on the S&P 500 which has support at 1100-1120. 

Is Citigroup (C) stock a buy in 2012?  I believe so!

Best Bank Stocks 2012 - Bank of America (BAC) - Bank of America (BAC) stock is also a buy in 2012.  BAC recently bounced off $6.00 and is now back to $7.00.  Given how much capital Bank of America has, I'd have to believe that we've seen a bottom.  If we do see another leg lower, I'd love to buy BAC stock in the $5's.  Bank of America is another one of my bank stock picks for 2012.  I have a personal price target on BAC for 2012 of $11.  This may seem crazy but BAC was just $11 two months ago.

Bank ETF's 2012 - Direxion Daily Financial Bull 3X Shares (FAS) - Direxion Daily Financial Bull 3X Shares (FAS) is a bank ETF that offers 3x leverage towards a basket of banks.  If you think the banks are a great buy, FAS is an ETF worth watching.  The investment seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300% of the price performance of the Russell 1000® Financial Services Index. The fund will invest at least 80% of assets in securities that comprise the index. It will also utilize financial instruments that, in combination, provide leveraged and unleveraged exposure to the index. The fund is non-diversified.  FAS holds stock such as BAC, GS, C, UBS, and JPM.

If you think the bank sector is due for a decline, buy FAZ - Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
