Williams Controls Inc. (WMCO): Today's Featured Automotive Winner

The automotive industry closed the day down 4%. Accuride ( ACW), Lear Corporation ( LEA), Ford Motor ( F), and Federal-Mogul ( FDML) were all winners today within the automotive industry with Williams Controls Inc ( WMCO) being today's featured automotive winner. Williams Controls Inc rose 29 cents (2.7%) to $10.99 on average volume. Throughout the day, 5,800 shares of Williams Controls Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3,900 shares.

Williams Controls, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of electronic throttle controls and pneumatic controls for heavy trucks, transit buses, off-road equipment, and military applications worldwide. Williams Controls Inc has a market cap of $78.1 million and is part of the consumer goods sector.

TheStreet Ratings rates Williams Controls as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including premium valuation, weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins.
