A Mixed-up Metaphor

by Alex Steelsmith

“…the banks are now among the biggest profit-generating machines in corporate America…
led by gains at Wells Fargo… and Bank of America… It might be a Goldilocksian time for the banks.”


“A bearish investor, also known as a bear, is one who believes prices will go down…
(A bear market) leaves investors feeling pessimistic about the future…”


Stashity cashity,
Bank of America
likes the bull market, an
expert declares.

Irony: only in
times is it apt to be
dealing with bears.
