TheStreet Ratings rates First Horizon National as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Royal Bancshares of Pennsylvania ( RBPAA), up 16.2%, Summit Financial Group ( SMMF), up 11.1%, Southwest Bancorp ( OKSB), up 10.8%, and First ( FBMS), up 10.6%, were all gainers within the banking industry with SunTrust Banks ( STI) being today's featured banking industry leader.
