The banking industry closed the day up 2.3%. Oak Valley Bancorp (OVLY), Mercantile Bancorp Inc (MBR), FNB NC Corporation (FNBN), and Green Bankshares Inc (GRNB) were all decliners today within the banking industry with Porter Bancorp Inc (PBIB) being today's featured banking loser. Porter Bancorp Inc fell 14 cents (-3.5%) to $3.81 on light volume. Throughout the day, 401 shares of Porter Bancorp Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 5,400 shares.

Porter Bancorp Inc has a market cap of $48.1 million and is part of the financial sector. Shares are down 60.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Porter as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, poor profit margins and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Bank VA Chesterfield (BOVA), Summit Financial Group Inc (SMMF), Kentucky First Federal Bancorp (KFFB), and Tennessee Commerce Bancorp Inc (TNCC) were all gainers within the banking industry with Bank of America Corporation (BAC) being today's featured banking industry winner.
