Duke Realty Corporation operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) in the United States. It offers leasing, property and asset management, development, construction, build-to-suit, and other tenant-related services. Duke Realty has a market cap of $3.98 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 23.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are six analysts that rate Duke Realty a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and six rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Duke Realty as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its solid financial position based on a variety of debt and liquidity measures that we have evaluated. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, FirstCity Financial Corporation ( FCFC), up 17.7%, Severn Bancorp ( SVBI), up 15%, United Community Financial Corporation ( UCFC), up 12.2%, and SYSWIN ( SYSW), up 11.5%, were all gainers within the financial sector with SunTrust Banks ( STI) being today's featured financial sector winner.

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).
