Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services Inc. (LTS): Today's Featured Financial Services Winner

The financial services industry closed the day down 1.9%. Noah Holdings ( NOAH), MicroFinancial Inc ( MFI), Siebert Financial Corporation ( SIEB), and PowerShares DB Agriculture Double Short ETN ( AGA) were all winners today within the financial services industry with Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services Inc ( LTS) being today's featured financial services winner. Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services Inc rose 2 cents (1.3%) to $1.54 on light volume. Throughout the day, 221,443 shares of Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 398,700 shares.

Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc., through its subsidiaries, provides a range of financial services primarily to corporate and institutional clients, and high net-worth individuals in the United States. Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services Inc has a market cap of $265.4 million and is part of the financial sector. Shares are up 29.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ladenburg Thalman Financial Services as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Penson Worldwide Inc ( PNSN), Morgan Stanley ( MS), CompuCredit Corporation ( CCRT), and Investment Technology Group Inc ( ITG) were all losers within the financial services industry with Goldman Sachs Group Inc ( GS) being today's financial services industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the financial services industry could consider Financial Select Sector SPDR ( XLF) while those bearish on the financial services industry could consider Proshares Short Financials ( SEF).
