Bank performances in 2016

So far, 2016 has been a rough year for the financial sector (XLF). Banks entered 2016 expecting four rounds of interest rate hikes. But things haven’t turned out in their favor.

Falling oil prices hurt banks’ earnings in the first quarter, and most banks expected earnings to improve in the second quarter. However, financials lagged in April and May as the Fed delayed an interest rate hike.

Then the Brexit vote on June 23, 2016, dragged financial stocks lower for June and led to a global sell-off of banks. A stronger dollar has also hurt bank profits with global operations.

In 2016, shares of JPMorgan Chase have fallen 11%. In comparison, shares of Goldman Sachs (GS), Citigroup (C), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Bank of America (BAC) have underperformed. They’ve generated returns of -20.6%, -22.1%, -15.8%, and -25.3%, respectively.
