Us Bancorp has the Lowest Forward Earnings Yield in the Diversified Banks Industry (USB, JPM, BAC, WFC, C)

By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Diversified Banks industry with the lowest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Us Bancorp ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 7.9%. Following is Jpmorgan Chase with a forward earnings yield of 8.5%. Bank Of America ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 9.6%.

Wells Fargo & Co follows with a forward earnings yield of 10.2%, and Citigroup Inc rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 10.4%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Citigroup Inc on August 2nd, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $67.35. Since that call, shares of Citigroup Inc have fallen 8.0%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
