Currently there are four analysts that rate Ocwen Financial Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ocwen Financial Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income and weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Royal Bancshares of Pennsylvania ( RBPAA), down 14.2%, OptimumBank Holdings ( OPHC), down 9%, CMS Bancorp ( CMSB), down 7.5%, and Green Bankshares ( GRNB), down 7.3%, were all losers within the banking industry with Deutsche Bank ( DB) being today's banking industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the banking industry could consider KBW Bank ETF ( KBE) while those bearish on the banking industry could consider ProShares Short KBW Regional Bankng ( KRS).
