Financial stocks were mostly higher ahead of Wednesday's opening bell.

Among financial stocks likely to move on news:

(-) Select Income REIT ( SIR ) was 3.9% lower in early trading Wednesday, previously slipping over 2% in Tuesday after-hours session when the real estate investment trust disclosed plans for a secondary public offering of 24.92 million shares of its common stock now owned by the Government Properties Income Trust ( GOV ). If completed, the upcoming stock sale would liquidate Government Properties' entire 27.8% stake in Select Income REIT, ending its tenure as the company's largest institutional investor it has held since July 2014.

In other sector news:

(+) THL Credit ( TCRD ) edged higher in after-hours trading, adding about 0.1%, after the asset manager late Tuesday priced a $50 million public offering of 6.125% notes due in October 2023. The company also provided underwriters with a 30-day option to buy an additional $7.5 million of the five-year notes. Net proceeds will be used to repay existing debt, including the redemption of its 6.75% notes due 2021 as well as paying down a portion of its revolving credit facility.

(-) KKR & Co LP ( KKR ) declined fractionally in Tuesday's after-hours trading after the private-equity investor said it has closed on its acquisition of BMC Software from a private investor group led by Bain Capital and Golden Gate Capital together with GIC, Insight Venture Partners and Elliott Management. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
