What Regional Banks are telling Us:

The KRE ETF is based on the SPDR S&P Regional Bank index. It contains 89 holdings, and the the top ten names only comprise 13% of the fund, which means it’s highly diversified within the sector. It’s got just over $2 billion in AUM, so the KRE is not responsible for driving the stocks it is comprised of – the stocks themselves are being bought.

The trailing-12 month yield is just 1.6% on KRE, meaning this is not going higher as part of a chase for yield. Investors presumably seek capital gain when they buy KRE, as the annual dividend here is not greater than that being offered by the S&P 500.
