Gruma SAB De CV (GMK): Today's Featured Consumer Goods Loser

The consumer goods sector closed the day up 0.9%. China Shengda Packaging Group Inc (CPGI), China Xiniya Fashion (XNY), China New Borun Corporation (BORN), and Tianli Agritech Inc (OINK) were all decliners today within the consumer goods sector with Gruma SAB de CV (GMK) being today's featured consumer goods loser. Gruma SAB de CV fell 21 cents (-3%) to $6.75 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 28,729 shares of Gruma SAB de CV exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 18,100 shares.

Gruma, S.A.B. de C.V., through its subsidiaries, primarily engages in the production, marketing, distribution, and sale of tortillas, corn flour, wheat flour, and related products. The company also provides grains, such as rice and oats. Gruma SAB de CV has a market cap of $972.3 million and is part of the food & beverage industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 46, above the average food & beverage industry P/E ratio of 18.4 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 7.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Gruma SAB de CV as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

On the positive front, Thor Industries Inc (THO), China Zenix Auto International Ltd ADR (ZX), Meritor Inc (MTOR), and Tufco Technologies (TFCO) were all gainers within the consumer goods sector with BorgWarner Inc (BWA) being today's featured consumer goods sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer goods sector could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Goods (IYK) while those bearish on the consumer goods sector could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods (SZK).
