8 of the Best Bank Stocks to Buy for 2023 | Investing

After a rough year in 2022, bank stocks have navigated a fresh minefield in 2023. Rising interest rates triggered a sharp decline in long-term bond prices, resulting in massive losses for banks holding them on their balance sheets. As a result, a handful of U.S. regional banks collapsed in March and April as a banking crisis rattled Wall Street. Bank investors are understandably concerned about a tight credit market and the potential for slowing loan growth, but weakness in high-quality bank stocks could also prove to be an excellent long-term buying opportunity for investors.
