Big banks are some of the most followed investments. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE: WFC), Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) and Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C) all report earnings this week.

JP Morgan beat earnings and revenue estimates on Tuesday, while Wells Fargo posted in-line earnings and disappointing revenue. Bank Of America, which reported on Wednesday, beat Q2 expectations.

Citigroup reports earnings on Thursday before market open.

So, what is readers' favorite big bank stock amid earnings season?

According to a Benzinga poll of 168 respondents, 50.6 percent of readers said they like Bank of America the best amid earnings season.

Citigroup and Wells Fargo came in second and third, respectively, while the crowd said they like JPMorgan the least.

Perhaps of greater importance, readers also revealed their favorite metrics to use while analyzing the space. When asked "What metric are you watching the closest?" readers said they prefer forward guidance and net interest margin over earnings, revenue, loans and trading revenue.

Of note, this poll was conducted on Monday July 13, before the companies mentioned reported earnings.
