These top financial sector stocks have the respect of top investors and look like steals at today's prices.
Mexican "unicorn" Clara, a startup with a valuation over $1 billion that offers corporate credit cards and expense management resources, said on Monday it has secured $150 million in debt financing from Goldman Sachs. The funds will be used to flesh out Clara's technological infrastructure and on increasingly larger credit lines for clients, Clara's chief executive officer, Gerry Giacoman, told Reuters. "Every day bigger and bigger companies are working with us, including some of the largest corporations operating in Latin America," Giacoman said, noting Spanish bank Sabadell, Mexican hotel chain RLH Properties and airline Volaris were clients.
The market's decline this year means there are plenty of compelling investments that are trading at attractive levels, making for appealing entry points for long-term investors. The financial sector is a great place to look, and you can split a $5,000 investment among these companies and own three blue-chip stocks with strong businesses, attractive valuations, and compelling dividend payouts, all operating in different segments of the financial industry. While you may not be an institutional investor or a high-net-worth individual who can invest in one of Blackstone Group's (NYSE: BX) deals or funds, that doesn't mean you can't benefit from putting some money to work in Blackstone's stock.
