Today, May 27, 20 companies set a new 52-week low. Of these 20 companies, these are the ones that I will be researching further over the next few days.

Bank of Kentucky Financial (BKYF)

Bank of Kentucky Financial is the holding company for The Bank of Kentucky, a community bank providing consumer and commercial services throughout Northern Kentucky. The bank offers traditional savings services and offers real estate, commercial, consumer, and construction loans.

Center Bancorp (CNBC)

Center Bancorp is the holding company for Union Center National Bank, which operates approximately 13 banking offices in northeastern New Jersey. The bank provides savings, checking, money market, and individual retirement accounts, as well as certificates of deposit. Union Center National Bank also originates real estate, business, and consumer loans. The banks also offer a range of lending, depository and related financial services, including trust services, to commercial, industrial, and governmental customers.

Hornbeck Offshore Services (HOS)

Hornbeck Offshore has one of the largest offshore supply vessel fleets, which it uses to transport goods and supplies to and from offshore rigs and platforms, primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. It also has a large fleet of tug and tank barges, which mostly transport petroleum in the Northeastern United States. Hornbeck has several new multipurpose supply vessels on order, which are expected to better address clients' needs for larger vessels.

Monsanto (MON)

Monsanto is one of the world's leading providers of agricultural inputs, including seeds, biotechnology traits, and herbicides. The company has a presence in more than 100 countries and generated $11.7 billion in sales during its fiscal 2009. The firm's seed and genomics segment generated 67% of companywide gross profit in 2009, while the herbicide segment contributed 33%.
