The U.S. banking sector has clocked bumper profits so far this year. Leading American banks have topped expectations for their quarterly profit supported by consumer spending and borrowing. Since 2015, the U.S. Fed has been nudging interest rates higher allowing banks to ring up record profits, including in the first half of 2019.

Stocks of U.S. financial institutions, with the exception of Wells Fargo, have soared 17% to 35% for the year to date, as of July 17. As a result, the S&P Banks Select Industry Index is up more than 17% for the year to date, not far behind 21% gains for the S&P 500 index, for the same period.
