Shares of Deutsche Bank, Other Euro Lenders, Take a Nosedive!

What a week for investors in European banks! Shares of Deutsche Bank and other big European lenders have tumbled, leaving their stockholders feeling seasick.

Where Did it Go Wrong?

It’s hard to tell why these stocks tanked, but it may have something to do with:

  • The EU’s stance on banking regulation.
  • The ongoing trade tensions between the US and China.
  • Brexit jitters causing investor uncertainty.

Whatever it may be, one thing is certain: the European banking sector is feeling the pain.

Small Fry Get the Worst of it

Small to medium-sized investors in European banks are getting the worst of it: their portfolios are taking major hits and their hard-earned money is going down the drain.

But don’t lose hope just yet! As history has shown, banking stocks have been known to recover from these types of dips. In the meantime, though, I’m sure there are plenty of stockholders that just can’t help but say “Oh Deutsche Bank.”

What Now?

If you’ve got money invested in European banks, it’s tough times for sure. But the silver lining here is that crisis like these can pave the way for massive rebounds in the coming months and years.

Until then, though, I guess all we can do it hold tight and hope for the best. To all the European bank investors out there, I say this: Ride the waves, stay optimistic, and do your best to weather the storm!
