UTi Worldwide Inc. (UTIW): Today's Featured Transportation Loser

The transportation industry closed the day down 3.5%. YRC Worldwide Inc ( YRCW), General Maritime Corporation ( GMR), Frozen Food Express Industries ( FFEX), and Trailer Bridge Inc ( TRBR) were all decliners today within the transportation industry with UTi Worldwide Inc ( UTIW) being today's featured transportation loser. UTi Worldwide Inc fell 98 cents (-6.9%) to $13.15 on light volume. Throughout the day, 283,163 shares of UTi Worldwide Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 768,800 shares.

UTi Worldwide Inc., through its subsidiaries, operates as a supply chain services and solutions company. UTi Worldwide Inc has a market cap of $1.4 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 19, below the average transportation industry P/E ratio of 19.3 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 36.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates UTi Worldwide as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income and poor profit margins.

On the positive front, Euroseas ( ESEA), FreeSeas Inc ( FREE), Grupo TMM SAB ( TMM), and USA Truck ( USAK) were all gainers within the transportation industry with United Continental Holdings Inc ( UAL) being today's transportation industry Leader Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the transportation industry could consider iShares Dow Jones Transportation ( IYT) while those bearish on the transportation industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
