JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) Chasing Commodity Investment Leaders

JPMorgan and Citigroup Looking to Commodities

Now that many of the banks and investment banks like JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) have finished shoring up their foundations and building up their reserve capital, they're looking at generating revenue, and the commodity bull market may be the best place to do that in the years ahead, as they try to catch up with competitors like Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) who make a lot of money in the sector, and are positioned well to continue doing that.

Although mergers and acquisitions and initial public offerins are expected to increase some this year, that business won't be a huge revenue generator until we truly emerge from the recession.

So commodities are one of the few growth sectors left which have a good chance of increasing revenue and profits for banks and their investment bank units.
