As we’ve discussed in this series, the outlook for brokerages (VFH) is positive, primarily because of interest rate hike expectations. In the first quarter, brokerages saw strong trading activity because of higher volatility.
In the second quarter, brokerages such as E*TRADE Financial (ETFC), Charles Schwab, and TD Ameritrade Holding (AMTD) are expected to see their trading revenue fall sequentially due to lower volatility.
