Credicorp Ltd (BAP): Today's Featured Banking Winner

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.

Credicorp ( BAP) pushed the Banking industry higher today making it today's featured banking winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.2%. By the end of trading, Credicorp rose $1.69 (1.3%) to $127.64 on average volume. Throughout the day, 291,562 shares of Credicorp exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 334,200 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $124.98-$128.43 after having opened the day at $124.98 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $125.95. Other companies within the Banking industry that increased today were: Credit Suisse ( UGAZ), up 12.7%, VelocityShares 3x Inverse Silver ETN S&P GS ( DSLV), up 5.1%, VelocityShares 3x Inverse Gold ETN linked t ( DGLD), up 4.0% and Center Bancorp ( CNBC), up 3.5%.

Credicorp Ltd., through its subsidiaries, provides financial services primarily in Peru, the Cayman Islands, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, and Panama. It operates in four segments: Banking, Insurance, Pension Funds, and Investment Banking. Credicorp has a market cap of $10.0 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 12.7, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 14.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 4 analysts that rate Credicorp a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Credicorp as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

On the negative front, Credit Suisse ( DGAZ), down 12.8%, C&F Financial Corporation ( CFFI), down 5.3%, VelocityShares 3x Long Silver ETN linked to ( USLV), down 5.2% and Grupo Financiero Galicia ( GGAL), down 4.6% , were all laggards within the banking industry with Citigroup ( C) being today's banking industry laggard.

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).
