After the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank, why did many US bank stocks experience a sharp decline?
Question on the BBBY squeeze hype
Which banking stock that recently dropped do you guys think is the best to load up on?
These MFs again blocked us from trading. THIS HAS TO STOP.
I made 244% return on WAL and 44% FRC today. Bought in around 10:30am and just sold at 3:58pm.
Not the typical short squeeze, but while everyone was short on $WAL and $PACW, I was looking for the bottom and harvesting profits on the way up. Good luck to you all in these uncertain times!

I'm talking about the banking stocks specifically. No idea why I'm getting downvoted, it's true, WAL is more likely to 3x than FRC and is far less likely to go to zero
WAL was always the right bet
I did buy into PACW and WAL yesterday, I think their sell offs were irrational and fear driven, rather than based on weakening fundamentals.
Why not put it in another stock that has just as much upside and less risk? $WAL would be way smarter than FRC which is unlikely to even make it to JPM's conservative $62 PT at this point.
Gonna watch WAL and FRC tomorrow. Bought shares.
WAL & PACW regardless of what they do
Wish I had bought more PACW and WAL yesterday.
lol. I'm happy FRC came back and gave the people who went in in the high teens and maybe even 20s a chance to get their money. I'm sittin pretty in WAL, although I'm kicking myself for not playing PACW too.
FRC & WAL ready for take off! Easy and rational money
I keep thinking, eh WAL's probably tapped out for the day... Then it keeps creeping up
I’m a proud seller of WAL stock. It feels great to send my $$$ where it BELONGS in the first place. MY BANK
FRC is a very dicey play. PACW and WAL are going to live or die on whether things blow over in the financial sector or whether the "dominoes fall." People like them because of the high upside. As long as another bank doesn't start to go under things may stabilize but things are so random right now.
Get in on WAL while it rebounds
I bought SCHW calls because I was too much of a chicken shit pussy to go into WAL or PACW. At least I made peace with that.
I'm looking at some smaller oil/energy stocks that took a hit off recession fears and with the dow sell-off. Have a feeling they'll get a decent rebound in the short/midterm. Of all the regional banks hit, WAL is my favorite as a 3-6 month trade. People have been moving into tech this past week, but I'd be wary. Everything is really in the air till Wednesday though
PACW (decent amount of insider buying) and maybe WAL or FRC if they don’t implode, but absolutely not short term unless you’re trading intraday and know what you’re doing. These would all be long term (years out, especially if we have a recession in the next year or two) picks.
Don't think WAL has the same kind of issues tbh
Does anyone know if citadel is still in WAL? Idk why I bought into this garbage 🗑️ stock… such trash 🤦♂️ smh
What’s your take on WAL? Mr
WAL is one of the best ran banks and well positioned to make it through this.
You know I sit here & worry too much about this stock & that. I believe it’s in gods hands. Whatever decision that is tomorrow, it was either meant to be or not.. WAL stock, I’m not going to stress anymore. Whatever happens will be
Does anyone know if Citadel is still locked 🔒 in WAL?
Rolling the 🎲 and shorting $WAL
FRC and most other regional bank stocks have been trading at 10-50x their average daily volume recently. There’s going to be a lot of losers, but also a lot of people who made out like bandits. I bought a bunch of $WAL at $25 last week when it cratered for no reason other than as a sympathy run with SVB. I’ve seen panic selling enough times now to know that’s what was happening. Sold at $40 on Thursday because the macro was getting hairy and there’s no reason to hold and hope on a spec play https://imgur.com/gallery/07nggao
[Nailed it.](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/11nr26n/comment/jbqg8o7/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3). At this point putting $100 on $WAL being next. Thought for a moment it was gonna be $EWBC and $WBS but looks like I was wrong and they're treading water for the moment.
> So a lot of stocks are down 80-90% from their highs Russell 2000 down 28% from ATH (small caps); Dow -11%; NASDAQ -29%; SPY -17%; VXUS -22% (ex-US stocks); VWO -31% (emerging). The bubbliest of bubble names: TSLA -55%; AMD -38%; Roblox -68%; SHOP -74%; WAL (regional bank) -74% (and it dropped 46% today alone!); RKLB -80%. Only the junkiest of junk stocks are actually down 80-90% for the most part.
Should I buy 50 WAL puts exp 3/24 $15 strike??? Help
Can we get the biggest, most handsomest, & last but not least most dominant hedge fund to lift WAL and make it roar back up
What do we need to happen to get WAL moving again?
Goodbye FRC nice knowing you....WAL Next!
First Republic is fuckin toast WAL probably next
I bought WAL at 38 and sold at 32. Just realized it wasn't worth it.
Come on WAL!!! We’re all rooting for ya. You can do it!!
Didn't intend anything, got lucky and bought the first dip at $27. I got into WAL at $15 and sold around $33. Wish, I had more to put in at the time.
All and all you’re just another lowser on the WAL
I think WAL is fine, FRC not so much
FRC headache needs to be dealt with so WAL can moon 🌝
Come on WAL… Make me proud of you 🥲
Why is $WAL on there ?
Come on WAL!!! Get up baby. Come on. 1 step 2 step lol
You’re regarded if you think WAL is going under OP
Good luck with that. Of all the risky regionals, I think WAL might be the healthiest.
**Ban Bet Created:** **/u/hightforgood** bet **WAL** goes from **30.0** to **26.0** before **25-Mar-2023 12:57 PM EDT** Their record is 0 wins and 2 losses.
CMA and WAL are next, Comerica in particular has some FUCKED fixed-income assets on their balance sheet that should have everyone's neck hair standing up
If it goes to 27 again I don't think I can resist. Under 30 feels like a very safe pickup for WAL even if you're just flipping it quickly on a reversal.
WAL getting pancaked along with FRC. Man that one is tempting.
WAL or FRC? Which will blow up my port fastest?
he already bought WAL.
Doesn't make sense FRC is down and WAL is up. Does market seriously think FRC can go down and not take every regional bank with it. FRC will trigger another panic cycle.
PACW and WAL aren’t the ones who got a 30 bil injection though
Makes no sense that PACW and WAL are pumping but not FRC. Something is fishy
I guess WAL was the play…
So I am gonna get some WAL shares. $5k to start, and I’ll add to it if the baby goes up. If it goes down, oh well…
$20k in WAL today? Am I returted? 🐢
We’ll at least WAL seems to be doing good still ![img](emote|t5_2th52|12787)
LOL these stupid fucks killed it with their panic and are now sobering up and realizing they ficked up. You can't make this shit up. Realizing they're fucked at a "big 5" bank to get what they need and they're "ist another depositer" rather than being treated how they want. Haha fuck these companies tbh, they deserve the bed they made, but the reality is this just shows the need for these institutions and if they kill them, they lose all their nice little benefits. If they kill FRC, PACW, WAL, etc. doing the same shit these specialized depositors are going to learn real fast they fucked themselves over.
The last sentence threw me off… could you rephrase that? The options I’m giving myself are either FRB or WAL. I chose FRB simply because of its February stock price which was north of $100 whereas the latter was around 70-80 range
Just because you put your 401k into an IRA doesn't mean you HAVE to gamble.............it just gives you more options and ability to take adavantage of situations that present themselves. The banking crisis for example............lots of healthy companies got beaten down.........the other day WAL was trading around $27..........I was able to buy 10 contracts Call $35 for $5.50 then sold later in the day for $10.50........while I was turning wrenches...........your never going to be able to do that with your 401k. I have the majority of my money in individual stocks that I want to own, some ETF's for the safe (is there such a thing....safe??) money, some REITS..........then I have $50k that I use to gamble. Any balance over $100k cash from 'gambling' goes to buy more stocks. When it hits $0 after I've fucked up that badly...........then I'm done gambling. You can set it up how you like............want all ETF's?? Some ETF's, some bonds, some stocks?? See a company you really think will take off and want in on.......now you can do it. Some people are more comfortable in the drivers seat than others. My wife has NO DESIRE to GAMBLE with her 401k.................she's going to leave that to the professionals (who have ...........as of late..........fucked up the banking system........next will be the insurance companies who also deal with bonds). Its up to you...........your money, your risk tolerance, etc. I enjoy learning about many different things. I learned about stocks back in grade school. Part of a lesson learning about fractions.......and since the stock market was using fractions and reported in the newspapers that way.........what better way to teach people about fractions. And here we are. Any way..........my .02 cents............your call. Pissed me off reviewing my 401k losses last year and then getting charged for the ass fucking............so now I'm driving.
Sounds like FRC and WAL deposits are secure. We don't know the outflows but they may survive intact given how much support they have and reported balances. NYBC reportedly looking at taking over SBNY. All but absolute dogs hit may survive
Ever see just one domino fall? Of course. But no, this is a domino effect, and now the market's out for blood trying to sniff out who's next. FRC, PACW, and WAL are likely on the list. Could be more, but price action tells me those 3 have a bulls eye on their back.
FRC and WAL seem screwed too. Their market caps are 3-4B. Which is more than what CS sold for. People might think those are both overvalued and get out on Monday.
Why buy FRC when you could just buy WAL? WAL won’t even need to do anything from here - no buyer needed, no more emergency liquidity needed. They saw deposit *inflows* at the end of the week and had >$20B in cash ready if any new run materialized (as of Friday!). Cmon, if you think FRC is a buy here, why not just buy WAL?
Meh, nah. This is classic “trapped in the moment” type shit. You know how people would look at charts of shit like BofA like 5 years after the GFC and go “ugh, why didn’t I buy back when they were selling for nothing?” Well, because in moments like this everyone somehow loses the ability to discern what’s quality and what’s shit. Instead of seeing lots of diverse businesses, suddenly it’s “all BANKS” are at risk. They aren’t. Like, no way in hell are the massive American banks at risk. They’re too “systematically important” anyway. Canadian banks are as safe as it gets. And even regionals like PNC have no business being on this. They’re solid and totally fine. Hell, fucking WAL was seeing deposit *inflows* at the end of last week, has >55% of its deposits fully insured, and has $20B in cash reserves ready for any outflows. Truly, why would they fail now? We’d need a new onslaught of bank runs *bigger* and way more panicked than the one we just saw in the wake of the SIVB, Signature, and FRC bank runs. And FRC isn’t failing, it’s just not going to be a profitable bank anymore. It’ll be sold.
I'll take WAL as the next one
I got in WAL at $8 and sold at $38
You are a brave men . I am always scared trading such stocks with larger positions. I was trading FRC, CS, WAL this week but my max trade size was around 5k at any single time ( stocks only no options ) in any of those banks and I would hold it only for 15min max. I have never seen so many vol.halts in one day but I like the way you think . I don't trade options that often , do you think that using level2 gives you significant edge trading options ?
WAL dipped like that to ! https://preview.redd.it/2l1g7qvwcooa1.jpeg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=dbe87d47f7d1ecbe02e4279078dcfd0c2e90005f
I’ll try that, I sold $40 cc on WAL and the stock hit the $40s on Thursday I think, so if it gets called away I’ll switch to Tesla.
I bought 900 shares of WAL this past week on the dio and sold covered calls, the premium is awesome.
Just depends on the bank. Recent (meaning this week) FRC, WAL, etc. plays are swing trades, but have potential to return to some higher price in the mid to long term, assuming the financial sector doesn’t crumble. SCHW, JPM, BAC, etc. are all long term.
bought WAL at almost its lowest. bought about 1k worth at 8.50. sold half at 22.50 and sold other half at 34. got into FRC too late at 27 average. sold for a loss at 22. will hopefully get back in monday i guess around 17-20 hoping to sell for a quick profit around 23 if it gets there. risk im willing to take. wish i would have put the 5k i had into WAL. my heart was racing. i knew it was good but obviously been burned in the past. never had my heart pound like this for a stock. biggest gain i ever had short term in my life. it was almost 400 percent gain on some of the profits.
If you look at their history, they've been doing a straight dive for a year. Staying away from that one. Bought WAL a soon as it dropped, gonna hold that for a while. Also, PACW on their way back up. Kinda regretting that one though. If FRC drops close to $10 next week, will probably buy some of that and hold it for awhile.
Not sure what your portfolio has however JEPI is a great ETF that also pays a great dividend! GDU is gold WAL is a bank that will recover I personally would fire more on BBBY and not do anything on GME
How could FRC and WAL not pump next week?
There are so many other regionals that have been taken down in this. I'd say others are degen enough like WAL or EWBC
Wild times. Could have made 300% on WAL this week. the stock is still down over 60% from its highs. My suggestion is invest in one of the stocks that is NOT at the center of the crisis, but right next to it. Or just buy an index like KRE. TFC - Truist is a particularly interesting one here. Also down 50% from the highs, but a top 15 bank by assets. Some of the top regional banks compare here (top holdings in KRE). https://mezziapp.com/dashboard/?id=0u6kXN1y4y2xOaaoFoRd
that 1 scary af I'd buy WAL if i were betting on up for these distressed banks.
I’m 594 in at about $34 a share. Thankfully I got 702 $WAL too, but in the mid 20’s. I ain’t selling for awhile.
$FRC looks like garbage if you look below the hood. But $WAL is actually fine - they don’t even need to do anything else (they has $25B in cash reserves this week, hardly any deposits outflows, and a book of assets that’s better than FRC’s and way less impacted by higher rates). Long $WAL. Bearish on $FRC. Now $FRC’s preferred shares could be exciting in a sale since the buyer would assume those obligations.
Started dipping my toe back into WAL after selling yesterday for huge profit. Around 30 feels like a good entry, but my greediness compels me to try and wait for the 20s again.
If you’re watching the bank stocks (PACW, FRC, WAL), keep an eye around 11:00-11:30. This is when we’ve been seeing a pump the past couple days 👀
Even with WAL 52 week low of $7.46?
I would pick WAL instead of FRC, less risk and good potential reward, but both are probably good picks
WAL wants 50 today. WAL will get 50 today
What if WallStreet forgets WAL and FRC, it goes to feds again right!
Well WAL just completely fucked me
SVB files Chapter 11 even with Fed Guarantee, FRC and WAL Next with Wallstreet Guarantee?
Picked up: 3k FRC @ $20.50, 3k WAL @ $21, 3k SCHW @ $46 Now I just need to hold for 1 year, and can dump for $400k+ profit, long term gains. Not gonna lie, Wednesday night I was sweating.
