JPMorgan has nearly a 3% yield. I like JPMorgan because the Federal Reserve loves banks and housing. The Fed, with QE3 and running the printing presses overtime, is doing all it can to ensure both improve. Shareholders receive $1.20 annually in dividend payments. You only need to look at the stock price to find out what happens when the Fed is on your side.
The shares have moved higher 25% over the last 52 weeks. Analysts are now calling for a price target of $46.58. The trend technically is bullish, and Jamie Dimon makes the Teflon Don look like crazy glue.
The smart money doesn't want to bet against Mr. Dimon either, and JPMorgan's short interest is only 1.2% of the average trading float.
