Despite the overall downward trend this week that left the broader market down 1.6%, a few stocks were still able to outperform.

In this video, Motley Fool financial analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer take a look at the financial sector and highlight for investors three stocks that made solid gains this week. Among them, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) made a move upward now that the shareholder vote on Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon retaining both of his roles has passed. The guys also discuss two solid stable banking stocks that can stay flat or even make upward movements, even during market pullbacks.
