  • Bank stocks plunged on Thursday as investors assessed the potential fallout from the implosions of Silicon Valley Bank and Silvergate Capital.

  • SVB Financial surprised investors with lowered guidance, a $2.3 billion capital raise, and a massive $1.8 billion loss from its bond portfolio.

Bank stocks were crushed on Thursday after implosions at Silicon Valley Bank and Silvergate Capital sent “shock waves” through the rest of the sector.

Mega-cap banks like JPMorgan, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo all fell more than 5%, while the regional banking sector sank by as much as 8%. The decline picked up steam throughout the trading day as shares of SVB Financial plunged as much as 62%. The KBW Bank Index fell 7.7%, its biggest decline since June 2020.
