  • Action to take: Shares likely have more upside from here as the banking sector is still lower even as nearly six months have passed since the bank failures in the spring. At current prices, PCB also yields 4.3 percent.

    For traders, PCB stock has been trending higher since the spring, but is still below the crisis high. The January 2024 $17.50 calls, last going for about $0.75, could see mid-double-digit growth in the months ahead.
