Patriot was listed by the rankings and analytics specialists at U.S. News as an Earnings Gainer, a distinction shared by fewer than 5% of the U.S. stocks considered.

The list of other top performing stocks also included: Discover, Shake Shack and Texas Instruments.
"It is an honor to have been named an Earnings Gainer by U.S. News & World Report, a distinction we proudly share with several major multinational corporations,"
Patriot Bank, which has locations across Fairfield County and New Haven County in Connecticut and Westchester County, N.Y., has experienced a dramatic turnaround since Mr. Carrazza led a team recapitalized the bank and saved it from being failed by regulators in 2010.
In the first quarter of 2018 it anticipates final authorization from regulators to complete its acquisition of Prime Bank in Orange, CT. It is also on target to soon open its new flagship bank branch in Stamford, and a new customer service location in Bridgeport, CT.
Patriot National Bancorp was also recognized by U.S. News & World Report in the category of Safe(er) Stocks, along with companies including EnvrioStar, Inc., National Beverage Corp., Fidelity and others.
