Maybe Too Big To Fail…

…But certainly not too big to short.  Here’s a weekly chart of XLF highlighting the peak to trough corrections following the weekly overbought readings going back to 2007.

Zooming into the daily charts, let’s just focus on the top 5 holdings of XLF, as they comprise nearly 37% of the holdings in that widely held financial ETF.  As noted on the charts, Berkshire Hathaway cl. B, which is the largest component of XLF, is comprised of nearly a 20% stake in Wells Fargo Corp, which is also the third largest component of XLF.  Therefore, WFC is definitely one to keep on your radar.
