The SPDR KBW Bank ETF (KBE), which counts Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC) JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and US Bancorp (USB) as its top five holdings, was at $26.01 when I wrote my story.
While it would hit a high of $29.22 on April 21, it touched a recent low at $23.33 Tuesday. Two reasons I highlighted, "Regulatory Threats Resurface" and "European Contagion," look especially smart. So give me an A for insight and a C+ for timing.
