Midsouth Bancorp Inc. ( MSL ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 7% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company as the stock is now down 6.71% in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this bank were revised over the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in trend either. The recent price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Midsouth Bancorp carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), while its Earnings ESP is negative.

However, some better-ranked banks worth considering include Access National Corp. ( ANCX ), Bank of Kentucky Financial Corp. ( BKYF ) and Pinnacle Financial Partners Inc. ( PNFP ).  All these stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
