7 Highest Rated Small-Cap Bank Stocks

5. Penns Woods Bancorp

Shares of Penns Woods Bancorp (PWOD) of Jersey Shore, Penn., closed at $37.61 Thursday, down 2% year-to-date, following a 2.5% return during 2011.

Based on a quarterly payout of 47 cents, the shares have a dividend yield of 5.00%.

The company had $793.1 million in total assets as of March 31, with 13 Jersey Shore Savings Bank offices in Lycoming, Clinton, Centre, and Montour Counties, in Pennsylvania.

Penns Woods Bancorp has been the strongest earnings performer over the past year among this group of seven A-plus rated banks and thrifts, with returns on average assets ranging from 1.64% and 1.90%.

The shares trade for 1.8 times tangible book value, and for 10 times trailing earnings.

While the shares have not seen an exciting year-to-date performance, the 5.00% dividend yield is very attractive and well-supported by earnings, and the company's strong and steady performance warrants the premium to book value.
