  • The bank reported Q3 2020 results that were actually well-received by the market (outside of its net interest margin), unlike most of the other banks that I follow.

  • The operating environment for KeyCorp will be challenging through at least the remainder of 2020, but I see the backdrop improving in early 2021.

  • We're long KeyCorp, and we have no plans to reduce our stake in the near future.

KeyCorp's ($KEY) stock has significantly underperformed the broader market over the last year, and it has been pretty much the same story so far in 2020.
