Financial dividend stocks with highest buy recommendation originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". One sector I've tried to avoid in the past was the financial sector. I have only stocks from financial services provider like Thomson Reuters or some Stock Exchange Operator like the NYX. Some major investors and hedge funds have started bets on the post financial recovery earlier with no greater success.
The whole financial industry is still in a crises and this should go on. I don't know how long. Jobs in the industry are still degraded and as long as the interest rates are low and there will be more and more jobs degraded.
Despite the bad sector news, Last year, the financial sector was the top performing bet with a 27.5 percent gain. I missed this opportunity but as of today, I cannot evaluate all the risks within the sector. I have no idea what kind of risk assets banks have and how they manage them.
What do you think about the sector? Do you have some shares from banks or related industries? Let me know and leave a comment in the box below.
