U.S. Bancorp (USB): Today's Featured Banking Laggard

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

U.S. Bancorp (USB) pushed the Banking industry lower today making it today's featured Banking laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.4%. By the end of trading, U.S. Bancorp fell $0.40 (-1.1%) to $36.92 on light volume. Throughout the day, 4,155,608 shares of U.S. Bancorp exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 8,579,100 shares. The stock ranged in price between $36.92-$37.42 after having opened the day at $37.42 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $37.32. Other companies within the Banking industry that declined today were: First Capital Bancorp (FCVA), down 7.5%, Emclaire Financial Corporation (EMCF), down 7.2%, Oneida Financial Corporation (ONFC), down 6.0% and China Commercial Credit (CCCR), down 5.3%.

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 $68.8 billion and is part of the financial sector. Shares are up 16.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are 12 analysts that rate U.S. Bancorp a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 14 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates U.S. Bancorp as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the positive front, Pathfinder Bancorp (PBHC), up 9.5%, Jacksonville Bancorp (JAXB), up 8.3%, Colony Bankcorp (CBAN), up 7.3% and Village Bank and Trust Financial Corporatio (VBFC), up 6.5% , were all gainers within the banking industry with Ocwen Financial Corporation (OCN) being today's featured banking industry leader.

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).
