Top Bank Stocks To Watch Right Now

Wells Fargo is having a hard time getting Americans to sign up for credit cards these days.

Credit card applications at Wells Fargo plunged by 55% in February, the sharpest decline since the bank’s fake account scandal erupted last September.

Another sign of trouble: Wells Fargo (WFC) said Monday that consumers opened 43% fewer checking accounts than a year ago and interactions with branch bankers fell by 21% in the same month.

Despite taking a series of steps to restore trust with customers, Wells Fargo community banking head Mary Mack admitted “we have more work to do.”

Mack said Wells Fargo ramped up its advertising in February and plans to launch a new marketing campaign in April.

Wells Fargo has suffered double-digit declines in checking account openings and credit card applications each month since the settlement that set off shockwaves across the nation and internally at the bank.

But the February plunge in credit card applications was worse than even the 50% decline Wells Fargo experienced in October during the height of the scandal.

    The uptrend in the shares of the Santa Clara, California, based NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) seems to have come to an abrupt halt. After rising 11% through the year to a peak of $119 February 9, NVDA stock has lost just over 7% in the few trading sessions since then, closing the last trading session at a price of $110.76 (Feb 22). The pain has only increased as the stock is down a further 2.66% to $107.81 in pre-market trade.

Or, is it yet another opportunity to buy NVDA stock on the dip? Well, we think it’s the latter. Here is why we t hink NVIDIA stock is poised for a rebound.
