Been going back and forth on these two. What do you think about these ?
C has the better yield & price. (Morningstar rates C 5star and JPM 4star)
Jpm has better financials. I think it has a better chance of not cutting div.
what do you think
I don't own C, picked up more JPM Thursday at 88.xx. Dimon did have a recent heart attack, he is 63, may or may not factor into his longevity with JPM. Still believe JPM to be the best run mega-bank.
I bought JPM last week at $89.66 with 4% yield. Also picked up WFC at $29.07. JPM will go on my growth list and WFC on income side.
First time in a long time I got back in with the : Money Changers. :)
I wanted to say hi and wish you well. I haven’t been posting much as have been fighting cancer. Doing well with that.
First time in a long time that we consider money changers, for us too. Leaning towards JPM too.
Interested in updates. We have JPM in a family account. Still hovering around $89. Near its year low.
Anybody reckon it’s worth adding to? Rates can only go up from here. Lot of people are going to be doing a lot of borrowing ahead.
(No interest in Citi, just adding to an existing conversation here.)
I would easily choose JPM. In fact, I'm about done buying KO for now, and I've been going back and forth between JPM and VZ for my next stock foray. Leaning towards JPM, since it is down so much from it's 52 week high. And it is a great franchise, plus it has the implied government backstop of "too big to fail". Good dividend, looks about as secure as any of the banks, I doubt they will be cutting it.
I think $90 or below is reasonable buy point. I was told yesterday by my neighbor that 4 of their 17 office staff have gotten 6 month mortgage deferments although they have been fully employed the entire time and no pay cuts. This is my way of saying some of the large reserve building by the banks may be less utilized than initially thought. Not saying that defaults, etc may not be significant, but some are just taking advantage of what's offered. I have also invested in BAC and USB, but JPM is the safest IMO. Will likely add WFC if current CEO keeps bringing in strong, experienced leaders to replace the clowns that were on the board and senior officials.
C has had a string of bad news/events: Regulatory reprimand on lax risk control; $1 billion fat-finger that sent money out that C cannot get all back; sudden change in CEO; an executive with QAnon connection. More shoe(s) to drop?
