Community banks have already faced challenging times, and now the Covid-19 crisis is adding to the woes.
There's are several reasons why Kass has been aggressively buying recent weakness in bank stocks.
Goldman Sachs is nearly +$10/share from its day's low in the early going. I added today as posted. I will be updating all my financial holdings over the next few days after this week's EPS releases.
Are the markets ready for a pause in this dramatic rebound? We are several weeks behind Europe in battling this pandemic and U.S. numbers are far worse. Time will tell.
The market has turned a blind eye to the economic challenges that lie ahead as the focus is on the government's massive creation of liquidity.
While there will be bumps, thuds and even some damage, 2020 will by no means bring about an end to dividend investing.
The banks are changing their stance, so let's see what the indicators say.
The financials, and Goldman Sachs (in particular), have a different and more positive look in this decline.
Forget the issue of a retest of the lows for now and focus on new areas of technical support.
I am in a dip buying mode now. I remain of the view that we do not retest -- in fact, we may not get close to a test. I bought small (for trades) on this morning's quiet session -- trading around cores. As mentioned I like Goldman Sachs and Citigrou...

It could make the difference if the debt and equity markets remained thawed after a brief period of freezing.
Piper Sandler maintains an "Overweight" rating on Goldman Sachs but takes their price target down from $278 to $214. Here is my latest update on GS this week.
The fundamental story may have improved but avoid it.
* The Indexes looked "like death" on multiple occasions today -- the market bent, but didn't break and ended strongly higher by day's end. * To me, short-term trading remains, at best, difficult in a market featured by silly high volatility and rand...
'The Fed has just put the economy in an induced coma, attaching it on fiscal and monetary life support, hoping that when the time passes it can be brought back to life.'
The mouse is roaring... Disney over $102 (Trade of the Week at $93 yesterday!). Added to banks, ViacomCBS , Goldman Sachs (last week's Trade of the Week) and hotels, and .
I sold out my trading long rental on Penn Gaming based on the announcement of a refinancing. More later. I added to , , , and this morning.

Proving that a broken clock is right twice a day, my Trade of the Week (long Goldman Sachs at around $134) is +$17 on the day. The shares are up to over $151.
