Due to the complications in the banking sector, things can be unpredictable. Still, the basic banking system is easy to come across and understand how these businesses make their money.

Banking stocks have done good in November following the vaccine news. Yet, they lag behind other sectors such as tech stocks that rebounded quickly during the Q3.

So, let’s have a look at the top three bank stocks for long-term investment.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM)

The biggest U.S. bank, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) has become one of the biggest growth investment stocks. JPM stock is pushing back to where it left in February 2020 around the $139 price mark.

JPMorgan is effortlessly the most profitable of top banks across the globe. The bank covers every part of both investment and commercial banking. JPMorgan has done pretty well in diversifying its credit card and auto loan businesses over the past few years.

JPMorgan is the only remaining big bank that survived and found its way out of the financial crisis. A company with a market value of $381.23 billion is way too difficult to default. The basics are strong and JPM stock is a long-term growth investment.

For analysts, JPMorgan (JPM) is a great investment for long-term growth.

The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (PNC)

A bank holding company and financial services corporation, The PNC Financial Services had performed decently this year. Considering a squeezing year, PNC has done well enough to sustain its position in the stock market.
