CapitalSource Inc (CSE): Today's Featured Financial Services Loser

The financial services industry closed the day down 2%. Palmetto Bancshares Inc (PLMT), Millennium India Acquisition Company Incor (SMCG), ProShares Ultra KBW Regional Banking (KRU), and MF Global Holdings (MF) were all decliners today within the financial services industry with CapitalSource Inc (CSE) being today's featured financial services loser. CapitalSource Inc fell 39 cents (-6.2%) to $5.92 on light volume. Throughout the day, 3.2 million shares of CapitalSource Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 4.4 million shares.

Operates as a specialized finance company that provides loans to small and medium-sized businesses. The company also selectively makes equity investments, engages in asset management and servicing activities, and invests in residential mortgage assets. It intends to qualify as a REIT in 2006. CapitalSource Inc has a market cap of $2 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 19.2, equal to the average financial services industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 11.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates CapitalSource as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income and weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, Security National Financial Corporation (SNFCA), China Ceramics (CCCL), CompuCredit Corporation (CCRT), and Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AGM.A) were all gainers within the financial services industry with Orix Corporation (IX) being today's featured financial services industry winner.

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).
