PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ:PACW) stock and PacWest’s Preferred Shares (NASDAQ:PACWP) are on the rise Tuesday as bank stocks start to recover from the recent crash.

Bank stocks underwent a major crash that started last week and continued into this week. It was all connected to the failure of SVB Financial (NASDAQ:SIVB). The death of this bank rattled investors and saw people pulling funds from other financial institutions.

All of this resulted in a bank stock crash yesterday that sent shares much lower. For instance, shares of PACW and PACWP, the company’s Series A stock, were down 21.1% and 45.3% when markets closed on Monday.

Now, it looks like these stocks are starting to recover on Tuesday. Part of what’s helping with that is the Federal Reserve creating a fund to provide banks with loans. This is acting similar to a bailout for banks amid the recent trouble.
