    It'll be a boring year for investing in financials, according to FBR Capital Markets - at least compared with last year. But boring doesn't mean safe, as the firm warns clients that unemployment is going to stress residential loans and financial earnings overall will disappoint. (ETFs: IYF, XLF)
