Janus Capital Group Inc. (JNS): Today's Featured Financial Winner

Janus Capital Group Inc ( JNS) pushed the Financial sector higher today making it today's featured financial winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 1.9%. By the end of trading, Janus Capital Group Inc rose 12 cents (2%) to $6.20 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 10.1 million shares of Janus Capital Group Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 5.6 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $5.82-$6.28 after having opened the day at $5.84 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $6.08. Other companies within the Financial sector that increased today were: Princeton National Bancorp Inc ( PNBC), up 31.7%, Penson Worldwide Inc ( PNSN), up 19.4%, Supertel Hospitality Inc ( SPPR), up 18.1%, and Southern Connecticut Bancorp ( SSE), up 15.3%.

Janus Capital Group, Inc. is a publicly owned asset management holding company with approximately $167.7 billion in assets under management. It also provides retirement planning, investment planning, tax planning, investment for college, and tax planning services to its clients. Janus Capital Group Inc has a market cap of $1.13 billion and is part of the financial services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 6.4, equal to the average financial services industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 53.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Janus Capital Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and poor profit margins.

On the negative front, Waccamaw Bankshares Inc ( WBNK), down 23.1%, Ameritrans Capital Corporation ( AMTC), down 18.1%, IFM Investments ( CTC), down 14.9%, and Bancorp of New Jersey Inc ( BKJ), down 14.4%, were all losers within the financial sector with Travelers Companies Inc ( TRV) being today's financial sector loser.

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