The KRE banking ETF ended the session more than 4% higher.- Advertisement – “If you look at where they unloaded their shares of BlackRock, they were at very good valuations. And while they’re giving up massive margins which come with BlackRock which are 40% margins, they’re still buying into a high-margin business, and one that is complimentary to their business. It opens up Texas, Alabama, Florida, Colorado, California, New Mexico and Arizona so this is a really interesting buy for them,” Sanchez said during the same “Trading Nation” segment.PNC sold its position in BlackRock for roughly $14 billion in May.
