These really could be the halcyon days for big bank stocks.

The sector has been riding high on a combination of a growing economy and rising interest rates. With the Federal Reserve continuing to raise benchmark rates, major banking institutions have realized higher profits and their investors have seen higher share prices and dividends.

But the best days could be coming down the pike.

Yes, rates will continue to rise, but the real win could be a new deal between the Fed and other regulatory bodies that will end so-called stress tests and reduce reserve requirements for the major banks. That will unleash billions of potential capital that could come flowing back to investors as even higher dividends and buyback activity.

For those investors looking for serious dividend and income potential, the bank stocks have to be on your list.
