Their vaccine will give them a boost in the near term, but it is not sustainable for their long term growth outlook. Their product pipeline is really hampering their growth outlook. Needs more visibility in their pipeline. It will continue to be depressed until there is movement here.

One of the top banks they own. It has done well and there is a reason the broader banking sector is doing well. Would not exit to take profits. As the economy reopens, they could start releasing provisions. They have excess capital and they cannot raise dividends or buy back stocks right now due to regulation. Once it is lifted, the stock should move.

An attractive choice right now. They are starting to get over their legacy business and are trying to sell it. They have had a few good quarters. Their book value is growing since it will garner a higher valuation. Return on equity will start to improve with higher earnings. Likes their Asian presence.

Have been adding to it since last June. Grows by acquisitions and organic growth. Global in nature. Latest acquisition was in environmental design and consulting firm which will have good growth. The balance sheet remains solid and allows for more acquisitions. Half of the business is in infrastructure and could benefit from Biden's infrastructure plan. (Analysts’ price target is $130.38)
