Top Stock Offerings in History

The top five secondary stock offerings on record in the US according to CNBC and Dealogic are
  1. $19.3B: Bank of America (BAC charts & Quote)
  2. $17B: Citigroup (C charts & Quote) Today!
  3. $12.65B: Wells Fargo Bank (WFC charts & Quote)
  4. $12.25B: Wells Fargo Bank
  5. $12.2B: General Electric (GE charts & Quote)
One way to get the banks in a single investment is with the exchange traded fund XLF (XLF charts and quote).

I added to my profitable newsletter position in Citi today when it was under $3.20. I sent an email to my subscribers announcing this buy when Citi was at $3.16. My last action before that was to buy shares at $2.95 when it was unclear if Citi would survive. With dividends included, I am on "house money" with Citi meaning that the sum of all my buys less money from selling higher priced shares and dividends is a positive number.
