TheStreet Ratings rates Northern Trust Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Central Federal ( CFBK), down 18.2%, Carver Bancorp ( CARV), down 17.4%, Credit Suisse ( DOIL), down 10.8%, and First Citizens Banc ( FCZA), down 8.7%, were all losers within the banking industry with Bank of America Corporation ( BAC) 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).
