Agilent Technologies Inc (A): Today's Featured Electronics Winner

The electronics industry closed the day up 0.1%. American Superconductor Corporation ( AMSC), Aehr Test Systems ( AEHR), LG.Display Company ( LPL), and Daystar Technologies Inc ( DSTI) were all winners today within the electronics industry with Agilent Technologies Inc ( A) being today's featured electronics winner. Agilent Technologies Inc rose 87 cents (2.8%) to $32.51 on average volume. Throughout the day, 4.7 million shares of Agilent Technologies Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 5.7 million shares.

Agilent Technologies, Inc. provides bio-analytical and electronic measurement solutions to the communications, electronics, life sciences, and chemical analysis industries in the United States and internationally. Agilent Technologies Inc has a market cap of $11.7 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 11.7, below the average electronics industry P/E ratio of 11.8 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 23.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Agilent as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and notable return on equity. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the negative front, Tegal Corporation ( TGAL), Aetrium Incorporated ( ATRM), Advanced Micro Devices Inc ( AMD), and SatCon Technology Corporation ( SATC) were all losers within the electronics industry with NVIDIA Corporation ( NVDA) being today's electronics industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology ( IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor ( SSG).
