10 Financial Stocks With Upside

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Lloyds Banking Group (LYG - Get Report), Barclays PLC (BCS), Banco Santander (Brasil) (BSBR), Itau Unibanco Holding (ITUB), ICICI Bank (IBN), Banco Bradesco (BBD), Banco Santander (STD), Credit Suisse (CS - Get Report), Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MTU - Get Report) and American Express Company (AXP - Get Report) are banking and financial stocks with potential to provide gains in the range of 11% to 73%, based on analysts' consensus estimates of price targets.

Meanwhile, Citigroup (C - Get Report), JPMorgan Chase (JPM - Get Report) and Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report) are estimated to return between 16% and 22% over the next 12 months, based on consensus estimates of analysts polled by Bloomberg.

The Federal Reserve left the benchmark fund rates unchanged on Wednesday. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) believes that the ongoing economic recovery is not satisfactory. The Fed maintained that the plan to purchase $600 billion worth of treasury securities is still on track.

Meanwhile, rising food and crude oil prices have heightened inflation fears; however, the FOMC indicated that longer-term inflation expectations remain stable and could trend lower, going ahead.

In the emerging markets, the People's Bank of China has hiked reserve requirement rates during the last two months, and policy makers in Brazil have increased reserve and capital requirements to flush out excess liquidity. To hedge inflation fears, the government of India has increased policy rates by 25 basis points.

These 10 financial stocks offer investment opportunities, going ahead. These stocks could deliver 11% to 73% returns during the next year with percentage buy ratings of 50% to 100%, according to analysts' estimates.
