The major indexes fell Friday morning as banking stocks came under pressure and investors considered recent employment data.
Silicon Valley Bank is facing big bond losses, while SVB Financial announced plans to raise $2 billion to offset losses from bond sales. The news weighed on the financial sector and banking stocks, sending the S&P’s financial sector down more than 4% Thursday.
Meanwhile, February payrolls came in at 311,000 versus 225,000 expected, indicating the labor market remains strong and causing investors concern regarding future rate hikes.
