Charles & Colvard Ltd. (CTHR): Today's Featured Metals & Mining Winner

The metals & mining industry closed the day down 5.5%. Synalloy Corporation ( SYNL), China Natural Resources Inc ( CHNR), China Precision Steel Inc ( CPSL), and Mountain Province Diamonds Inc ( MDM) were all winners today within the metals & mining industry with Charles & Colvard ( CTHR) being today's featured metals & mining winner. Charles & Colvard rose 6 cents (2.6%) to $2.36 on light volume. Throughout the day, 2,470 shares of Charles & Colvard exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 30,400 shares.

Charles & Colvard, Ltd. manufactures, markets, and distributes Moissanite jewels for use in fine jewelry in the United States and internationally. Charles & Colvard has a market cap of $44.6 million and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 76, equal to the average specialty retail industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 23.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Charles & Colvard as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive.

On the negative front, Lake Shore Gold ( LSG), US Gold Corporation ( UXG), Timberline Resources Corporation ( TLR), and Avino Silver & Gold Mines ( ASGMF) were all losers within the metals & mining industry with Alcoa Inc ( AA) being today's metals & mining industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the metals & mining industry could consider SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF ( XME) while those bearish on the metals & mining industry could consider PowerShares DB Base Metals Sht ETN ( BOS).
