How Bank Of America & Yields Have Moved After Fed Hikes

Typically, as yields rise, so too do bank stocks. It may seem surprising (at least it was to me) that the 10-year yield has fallen in the days following the last three Fed hikes. As a result, bank stocks like Bank of America have corrected in lock step.

If you recall, the value of the 10-year yield is driven by inflation and growth expectations and not necessarily by Fed hikes. As a result, the 10-year yield has fallen over 14% since the March rate hike as waning optimism over economic growth and the President’s business-friendly agenda getting passed through Congress.

Global capital flows into the U.S. are driving down yields and somewhat offsetting the Fed hikes or at least, offsetting the Fed’s plans for steepening the yield curve in their effort to get banks to lend more money and normalize the Fed’s interest rate policy.
