Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Friday, Aug. 25, that bank lending has grown in line with economic growth. Yellen also said that the U.S. has made significant progress toward price stability and maximum employment, two conditions that the bank has previously said would precede a hike in interest rates.

Yellen made her comments in a speech at a symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, attended the global central bankers.

Here is how bank stocks reacted to her comments: 

Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) - Get Report shares were up 0.1% on Friday, paring back some gains after topping out at a 0.63% gain in early market trading. 

Goldman Sachs Group Inc.  (GS) - Get Report shares were also still in the green, up 0.5%, but also lost some of the bigger gains from just five minutes before the start of Yellen's speech. Goldman Sachs shares were up 0.62% right around the time Yellen's speech began. 

Bank of America Corp. (BAC) - Get Report also experienced a slight dip from its session high after 10 a.m. ET. The stock was up 0.5% after rising as much as 0.7% earlier in the session. 

Shares of Citigroup Inc.  (C) - Get Report were up 0.6% shortly after Yellen spoke, not far from their high for the session. 

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) - Get Report maintained the growth it had from earlier in the session before Yellen's speech began. JPMorgan shares were up 0.92% in morning trading.
