NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Susquehanna (Nasdaq: SUSQ) hit a new 52-week high Friday as it is currently trading at $10.37, above its previous 52-week high of $10.35 with one million shares traded as of 10:40 a.m. ET. Average volume has been 1.8 million shares over the past 30 days.

Susquehanna has a market cap of $1.83 billion and is part of the financial sector and banking industry. Shares are up 22.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

Susquehanna Bancshares, Inc., through its subsidiaries, provides retail and commercial banking, and financial services in the mid-Atlantic region. The company has a P/E ratio of 24.4, equal to the average banking industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Susquehanna as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. You can view the full Susquehanna Ratings Report.
