Top Financial Stocks
Financial stocks were moderately lower in recent trade, with the NYSE Financial Sector Index dropping about 0.3% while financial companies in the S&P 500 Index were sinking by over 0.4%.
In company news, Patriot National ( PN ) was nearly 9% higher on Tuesday after reaching a session high of $1.66 a share, after the New York Stock Exchange provided the insurance carrier with a six-month extension to file all of its required regulatory filings and regain compliance with NYSE listing rules for its stock.
The company now has until March 15, 2018, to file its Form 10-K annual report for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2016, as well as Form 10-Q quarterly reports for the three months ended March 31 and June 30. The NYSE last month warned Patriot National it was also at risk of having its stock delisted because the combined value of its outstanding stock had fallen below the stock exchange's $50 million minimum.
