What is a Financial Stock?

A financial stock provides capital services to its customers. These could be people, businesses, organizations, or even governments. Capital services can be very broad but some key activities are the cornerstones of financial stocks.

Bank Deposits and Loans

Bank deposits are a key service provided by banks. This service allows depositors to safely store their capital and also get insurance on its safety by getting guarantees from the government on their deposits and also minimizing risk of theft by pooling their deposits with other depositors.

Banks then use the bulk of the deposits to provide loans to different entities. These loans can range from car loans to house loans all the way to business loans or even short term loans to other banks.

Payment Transactions

Companies like MasterCard (MA), Visa (V), and American Express (AXP) provide payment networks to help rapidly facilitate payment transactions. These companies provide fraud protection and payment protection for unauthorized transactions.

These payment networks also provide temporary capital liquidity by giving user's credit, adding to the purchasing power of individuals and businesses.

Why Buy a Financial Stock?

Financial stocks can provide returns that exceed the overall market. They are drivers of business and commerce. When the stock market goes up, financial stocks will typically move with a higher beta than the overall market.

Strong financial stocks will typically provide stable growth over multiple years. These stocks may have a fortress balance sheet or a niche regional market.
