NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A fresh analysis of publicly-traded U.S. bank and thrift holding companies by TheStreet highlights another 10 bank stocks with attractive dividend yields.
An earlier feature on Six Bank Stocks with Solid Dividends was limited to selected names with higher trading volume.

Shares of the highly efficient and conservative Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK - Get Report) closed at $12.68 Thursday, with shares yielding 4.73%. Peoples United Financial (PBCT - Get Report) saw its yield increase to 4.47%, as shares pulled back to close at $13.87 Thursday, and First Niagara Financial (FNFG - Get Report) also pulled back, to $12.84, with shares now yielding 4.37%.
