With many banks reporting earnings last week, we decided to check Quant Ratings to see if there were any stocks worth investing in. Citigroup's earnings beat expectations on account of lower legal expenses. On the other hand, Goldman Sachs' earnings came in below expectations on account of higher legal expenses. However, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs both beat analyst revenue expectations, which is a bullish sign for bank stocks, and that should be the narrative through 2016. Here are some of the best volatile banks and brokerage firms TheStreet Quant Ratings says you should consider looking at. Number 4 is Charles Schwab Corporation. With a 'B ' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its revenue growth and expanding profit margins. 3rd is, TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation. With an 'A-' rating TD Ameritrade thrives in its solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. 2nd is Goldman Sachs Group. This rating is also an 'A-.' The company flourishes in its revenue growth and attractive valuation levels. Number 1 is Raymond James Financial. With an 'A+' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its revenue growth and solid stock price performance. TheStreet Ratings are algorithmic stock picks based on 32 major data points.
