10 of the Best Bank Stocks to Buy for 2022

After a big year in 2021 and a hot start to 2022, bank stocks have lagged in recent months. The combination of a recovering U.S. economy and the potential for aggressive Federal Reserve interest rate hikes could set up bank stocks for outsize earnings growth in the next couple of years.

Despite the recent volatility, analysts say many bank stocks remain undervalued. Here are 10 of the best bank stocks to buy in 2022, according to Wall Street analysts.
