Regions Financial Corporation (RF): Today's Featured Financial 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.

Regions Financial Corporation ( RF) pushed the Financial sector higher today making it today's featured financial winner. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.3%. By the end of trading, Regions Financial Corporation rose $0.12 (1.2%) to $10.22 on average volume. Throughout the day, 13,310,940 shares of Regions Financial Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 14,736,000 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $10.03-$10.26 after having opened the day at $10.10 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $10.10. Other companies within the Financial sector that increased today were: Supertel Hospitality ( SPPR), up 50.7%, Royal Bancshares of Pennsylvania ( RBPAA), up 16.5%, Howard Bancorp Inc Md ( HBMD), up 14.3% and HCI Group ( HCI), up 14.2%.

Regions Financial Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, provides banking and bank-related services to individual and corporate customers in the United States. The company operates in three segments: Business Services, Consumer Services, and Wealth Management. Regions Financial Corporation has a market cap of $14.3 billion and is part of the banking industry. Shares are up 2.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Regions Financial Corporation a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 9 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Regions Financial Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Elbit Imaging ( EMITF), down 39.7%, Blackhawk Network Holdings ( HAWK), down 20.2%, Employers Holdings ( EIG), down 15.4% and Cash Store Financial Services ( CSFS), down 13.2% , were all laggards within the financial sector with Ventas ( VTR) being today's financial sector laggard.

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).
