CapitalOne185 10 Experts Pick the 10 Best Stocks for 2012Banks aren’t exactly super popular right now, so it might surprise you to see senior analyst Philip van Doorn of TheStreet picking Capital One Financial (NYSE:COF) as his best best for 2012.

But a closer look at the stock shows a lot to be bullish about, even as the rest of the financial sector melts down. Namely, strong fundamentals and a historically low valuation and book value.

Capital One also has two very important mergers in the works that will provide future growth beyond its generally well-run banking operations.

Philip is adamant that this is not just a dumpster dive, saying “the most important factor in Capital One’s strong performance this year is its outstanding earnings performance.” Compared with the big banks on Wall Street, COF is in a class of its own.

Read Philip’s complete recommendation on Capital One.
