Conventional wisdom says diversify; but that's not such a good idea.
Use any weakness to scoop up Wells Fargo stock.
Here is a three-month chart of Citigroup (C) and JPMorgan (JPM) compared to the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY). I cut my teeth on the sector and have some street cred in the group, having been Putnam's bank, thrift and GSE analyst in the 1970s. I also coauthored the book Citibank with Ralph Nader when I was a "Nader Raider" at business school in Philadelphia.

Recommended Reading Real Money Pro($)

Real Money Pro's Gary Morrow reviews the technical moorings of Wells Fargo (WFC).
10-year Treasury yields have reversed higher by 8 basis points from the morning's lows. The U.S. dollar is getting stronger (111.14 against the euro). Crude is lower. Equities are overbought. Good news (housing) may be bad news. Everyone's favorite, Apple (AAPL), is faced with the reality of Apple TV (see Piper Jaffray's research). While I continue to prefer being reactive (over-anticipatory), I did short (small) the SPY ($213.72) and QQQ ($110.38) in the premarket trading ramp.

Banks Making New Highs Real Money Pro($)

Shares of many money center and regional banks that I have written about are making new highs today. I would not disturb holdings in this, my favorite long sector.
The strongest sector right now is benefiting from interest rates talk.
Loan misuse and Fed's threatened rate hikes aren't helping.
