Financial stocks (XLF +2.5%) lead today's early advance, with Bank of America (BAC +4.2%), Citigroup (C +6.4%) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM +5.1%) leading the effort. In contrast, defensive-oriented consumer staples lag the broader market, as the likes of Procter & Gamble (PG +0.2%) and Kraft (KFT +0.1%) display only limited strength.
