The financial sector "cheated the test" this earnings season, and that sets the banks up to be an investing bear trap. But hidden among the weeds are a few companies that couldn't be in a better position to rally.
Banks have serious underlying issues - issues that could burn unsuspecting investors in the near future.

I don't know of any other sector providing anywhere near this level of growth now.
