Currently there are 4 analysts that rate CBRE Group a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates CBRE Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year 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, China Ceramics ( CCCL), down 17.3%, Howard Bancorp Inc Md ( HBMD), down 16.8%, PowerShares DB Agriculture Short ETN ( ADZ), down 12.0% and iPath Global Carbon ETN ( GRN), down 8.3% , were all laggards within the financial sector with Bank of New York Mellon ( BK) 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).
