Growth Keeps Growing

Since the banking scare erupted, so, too, have growth stocks. The move underscores that size matters when things get shaky.

The price not only seduces the fast money crowd but the eggheads, too.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.  First Citizens Bancshares of North Carolina is buying Silicon Valley Bank’s assets.
