U.S. Bancorp, a financial services holding company, provides a range of financial services in the United States.

U.S. Bancorp has a market cap of $67.1 billion and is part of the banking industry. Shares are up 13.8% 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 growth in earnings per share, expanding profit margins, increase in stock price during the past year, notable return on equity and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. Get the full U.S. Bancorp Ratings Report now.
