TheStreet Ratings group would like to highlight 5 stocks pushing the sector lower today:

5. U.S. Bancorp ( USB) is one of the companies pushing the Financial sector lower today. As of noon trading, U.S. Bancorp is down $0.23 (-0.7%) to $32.15 on average volume Thus far, 4.1 million shares of U.S. Bancorp exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 9.9 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $31.99-$32.44 after having opened the day at $32.44 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $32.38.

U.S. Bancorp, a financial services holding company, provides a range of financial services in the United States. Its services include lending and depository services, cash management, capital market, and trust and investment management services. U.S. Bancorp has a market cap of $61.0 billion and is part of the banking industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 11.3, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 1.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates U.S. Bancorp as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, expanding profit margins, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results. Get the full U.S. Bancorp Ratings Report now.
