By the end of trading, Cullen Frost Bankers fell $0.77 (-1.1%) to $70.07 on average volume. Throughout the day, 495,582 shares of Cullen Frost Bankers exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 413,700 shares.

Cullen/Frost Bankers, Inc. operates as the holding company for Frost Bank that offers commercial and consumer banking, and other financial products and services primarily in Texas. The company operates in two segments, Banking and Frost Wealth Advisors. Cullen Frost Bankers has a market cap of $4.3 billion and is part of the financial sector. Currently there is 1 analyst that rates Cullen Frost Bankers a buy, 6 analysts rate it a sell, and 9 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Cullen Frost Bankers as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins, solid stock price performance and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.

On the positive front, Greene County Bancorp ( GCBC), up 17.5%, Plumas Bancorp ( PLBC), up 11.3%, Sterling Financial ( STSA), up 9.2% and Porter Bancorp ( PBIB), up 8.3% , were all gainers within the banking industry with Citigroup ( C) 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).
