Franklin Financial churns near IPO price on first day

Shares of Franklin Financial Network didn't rise or fall much Thursday on their first day of trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Interestingly, the $21 level served as a hard cap for traders, who consistently stopped bidding up the stock right at $20.99. Heading into the last half hour of trading, more than 870,000 shares had changed hands.
