Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRT): Today's Featured Financial 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.

Federal Realty Investment ( FRT) pushed the Financial sector lower today making it today's featured Financial laggard. The sector as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, Federal Realty Investment fell $2.18 (-1.9%) to $111.08 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 808,847 shares of Federal Realty Investment exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 484,100 shares. The stock ranged in price between $109.63-$113.81 after having opened the day at $112.12 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $113.26. Other companies within the Financial sector that declined today were: Gaming and Leisure Properties ( GLPI), down 17.1%, J.W. Mays ( MAYS), down 15.3%, Imperial Holdings ( IFT), down 12.2% and Siebert Financial Corporation ( SIEB), down 9.9%.

Federal Realty Investment Trust operates as a real estate investment trust, which engages in the ownership, management, development, and redevelopment of retail and mixed-use properties. Federal Realty Investment has a market cap of $7.3 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 11.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 5 analysts that rate Federal Realty Investment a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Federal Realty Investment as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Bbva Banco FrancesS.A ( BFR), up 11.6%, Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bear 3X Shares ( DUST), up 9.3%, Desarrolladora Homex SAB de CV ADR ( HXM), up 8.7% and Macro Bank ( BMA), up 7.9% , were all gainers within the financial sector with Legg Mason ( LM) being today's featured financial sector leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the financial sector could consider Financial Select Sector SPDR ( XLF) while those bearish on the financial sector could consider Proshares Short Financials ( SEF).
