Why the Good Bank Stocks Are Having a Good Year

Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC  ) , PNC Financial Services (NYSE: PNC  ) , and US Bancorp (NYSE: USB  ) are having a good year when compared to some of their more troubled peers.

Dubbed the "good banks" by Motley Fool financial analyst David Hanson, is the positive performance of these so-called "good banks" surprising?

In this episode of The Motley Fool's Where the Money Is, David Hanson and fellow financial analyst Tyler Riggs dig deeper into the changing face of the banking industry and discuss what makes these good, solid banks stand out from all the rest.

Could these banks team up with this Apple device?
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible. But the secret is out, and some early viewers are claiming its destined to change everything from banking to health care. In fact, ABI Research predicts 485 million of this type of device will be sold per year. But one small company makes Apple's gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early-in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here

    Readers - don't be taken in by this typical Motley Fool come-on. If you click on the video, you get a lengthy series of self-serving sales pitches and you never get the promised answer unless you sign up for a subscription. Included is a series of fantastic stock picks that David Gardner reportedly made. But there is a very brief screenshot that shows his picks beat the S&P 500 over a nine year period by about 61% to 42%. Admirable, but there must have been a whole lot of horrible picks in there to offset the advertised "genius visionary" picks that have skyrocketed. They don't tell you about those, of course, although they would be required to provide full disclosure if they were managing money and registered with the SEC. And why nine years, not 5, or 10, or 15? Just about anyone can find a time frame that looks good. They will probably erase this post, let’s see how far their ethics go.
