Bank earnings: Post-pandemic recovery?

As the global economy recovers in fits and starts, major banks are expected to post favourable earnings for the third quarter. Take a position on household names like JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Citibank ahead of earnings season.

Could bank earnings fuel a bounce in the markets?

Earnings season is back and, after the recent sell-off in the markets, all eyes are on the big banks going into Q3. Although the financial sector has overall surpassed expectations after the drumming it got when the pandemic first swept the globe, uncertainty remains as inflation gathers pace.

While the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve and many others have decided to hold interest rates steady for now, this could change significantly in 2022 should inflation continue to push higher. With that being said, forecasts for the likes of JP Morgan, Citibank, Bank of America, Barclays, Lloyds and HSBC in the final quarter of this year look strong, and positive reports could go a long way to allaying the gathering fears of a global economic slowdown.

Take a position on the major bank stocks now.
