Some banks have reached attractive entry points, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital believes that banks may be hurt by the Fed's decision to delay raising interest rates in the wake of Brexit, and the firm admits that ucertainty regarding the EU membership of other countries could hurt U.S. banks going forward. However, the firm adds that "a silver lining" could be a boost to banks' fixed income businesses. Additionally, the firm thinks that the 10% decline in the shares of some banks "seems to be a bit premature," with the valuation of a number of banks falling to "low levels." It recommends that investors buy the following bank stocks: lBB&T (BBT), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN), JPMorgan (JPM), KeyCorp (KEY), M&T Bank (MTB), Northern Trust (NTRS), PNC Financial (PNC) and U.S. Bancorp (USB). The firm adds that "risk oriented investors should look to buy" Bank of America (BAC) and Citi (C).

Too early to buy the dip in bank stocks if rates stay this low, says Baird
Baird analyst David George said that lower reinvestment rates for securities should pressure net interest margin and earnings outlooks at banks and he recommends waiting until bank stocks reflect a greater discount for credit/recession risk before getting more aggressive in the space. While some management teams may choose to shrink balance sheets rather than reinvest at record-low yields, consensus earnings estimates in the sector should "trend meaningfully lower," George tells investors. Big banks among those covered by Baird include Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan (JPM), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
