Bank stocks fall as Fed's dovish message pulls down Treasury yields Bank stocks were broadly lower Thursday, to underperform the broader stock market indicators, as the 10-year Treasury yield fell in 3-month lows in the wake of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's dovish message. The SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF fell 1.5% in premarket trading, while futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average gave up 223 points, or 0.9%. Among the sectors more heavily weighted members, shares of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. shed 1.5%, Bank of America Corp. gave up 1.5%, Wells Fargo & Co. lost 1.8% and Citigroup Inc. shed 1.8%. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell 2.4 basis points to 0.553%, the lowest yield seen since April 21, after Powell said Wednesday that recent data suggests a slowing in the pace of the recovery, as COVID-19 cases increase. Lower long-term yields can hurt bank profits, as that narrows the spread between what banks earn on longer-term assets, such as loans, which are funded by shorter-term liabilities.
