Bank Shares: UK Banks vs Euro Banks

Introduction – I have seen many worry about the British banks since Brexit. However I still am sticking to this idea of stop worrying about the UK worry about the Eurozone. Using the share prices I want to show how the European banks are really struggling (pre and post-Brexit) and how this is where the main concern should be.

The Concern
Many seem to be worrying about the value of shares for British banks. However firstly from what I have seen, with the exception of a couple they have all bounced back and in the last few weeks seem to be recovering. That is more than what can be said for the European banks who have been a on a steady decline and have been for the past year. On top of the fact that less have recovered well over the past few weeks.

[Note – I am aware that there other ways to measure how well a bank is doing but as this is an easy one to show and plus because many of the British newspapers have commented on it. Similarly I know I have only focussed on about half of the countries in the Eurozone but it could take all day to do all so I based it on the biggest]

Some of these (for example Barclays and Lloyds) have been on slow decline but if you compare these to the biggest banks in the Eurozone it is not as steep and they have started to bounce back. Which can be more than what can be said for some European Banks. In fact from what I have seen the best European banks are about the same as the worst British banks.
