Bank Stocks to Bet On
Guests: Stephen Biggar and Evan Momios, Standard & Poor's analysts of banking and financial-services stocks
Tune in every Tuesday after the market closes for another of the market chats jointly sponsored by BusinessWeek Online and Standard & Poor's, which collaborate to give you BusinessWeek Online Personal Investing, where you can find all the investment info you need.
After an update on what the markets have been doing, pick the brains of a specialist in a crucial market sector. This time, are financial stocks a good place to be as the market -- and the economy -- struggle to recover from their downturns?
And if so, what looks best? Money-center banks, regional banks, brokerages, insurance?
Our guests will be Stephen Biggar and Evan Momios, who follow banking and financial-services stocks for Standard & Poor's. Steve has been covering financial stocks for more than six years at S&P. He has been quoted in such publications as Forbes, Money, and American Banker and has appeared on CNN/FN and CNBC. Prior to joining S&P, he served in a similar capacity at Argus Research Corp. He has a BA in economics from Rutgers.
The moderator of this chat will be Jack Dierdorff, consulting editor of BusinessWeek Online and former managing editor of the magazine. Hope you'll join us!
