Earnings season is in full swing, and more bank names have stepped into the confessional this morning. Below, we will take a look at the outsized post-earnings reactions from Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE:SCHW)Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), and Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC)

SCHW is propping up the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) today, last seen 12.1% higher to trade at $65.71. The security is on track for its largest single-session pop since March 2020, and is set to close at its highest level since a massive bear gap back in March. Schwab's second-quarter earnings and revenue topped estimates thanks to a jump in asset management fees. Despite today's breakout, there's overhead resistance at the shares' 200-day moving average and -20% year-to-date level.

MS is 6.2% higher to trade at $91.81, on track for its best day since November and eyeing its highest close since March. Morgan Stanley also turned in a top-line beat for the second quarter thanks to a growing investment banking backlog. Shares are now up 16.4% year-over-year. 

BAC is up 4.2% to trade at $30.64 at last check, brushing off a downgrade from CFRA to "hold" from "buy," as well as a price-target cut to $32. Bank of America announced a beat-and-raise for the second quarter, with a share buyback offering tailwinds as well. The stock remains off over 7% in 2023, with their 160-day moving average looming above. 



How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
