NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer says J.P. Morgan JPM and Goldman Sachs GS had low expectations and reported solid numbers, which was enough to send the stocks higher. He thinks both of these stocks are very cheap.
By contrast, Wells Fargo WFC had high expectations and also released strong numbers. But when expectations are high, Cramer says, investors will see a sell-off. But he likes all three stocks because the banking sector is still well behind the market.
TheStreet Ratings Team agrees on all three counts. It rates J.P. Morgan as a "buy" with a ratings score of B+ and has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate JPMORGAN CHASE & CO (JPM) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
