Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated (RAH): Today's Featured Food & Beverage Winner

The food & beverage industry closed the day down 1.5%. Pilgrims Pride ( PPC), Cagle's Inc ( CGL.A), Tianli Agritech Inc ( OINK), and 57th Street General Acquisition ( CRMB) were all winners today within the food & beverage industry with Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated ( RAH) being today's featured food & beverage winner. Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated rose 94 cents (1.2%) to $76.78 on light volume. Throughout the day, 803,222 shares of Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.1 million shares.

Ralcorp Holdings, Inc. provides various food products and ready-to-eat cereal products. Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated has a market cap of $4.2 billion and is part of the consumer goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 18.8, equal to the average food & beverage industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 16.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ralcorp as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, AgFeed Industries Inc ( FEED), Coffee Holding Company Inc ( JVA), Jones Soda Company ( JSDA), and Key Technology Inc ( KTEC) were all losers within the food & beverage industry with Farmer Bros ( FARM) being today's food & beverage industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Food & Beverage ( PBJ) while those bearish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares DB Agriculture Sht ETN ( ADZ).
