SmartHeat Inc. (HEAT): Today's Featured Industrial Loser

The industrial industry closed the day up 3%. Asia Pacific Wire & Cable Corp ( APWC), Asia Pacific Wire & Cable Corp ( AWRCF), Cleantech Solutions International Inc ( CLNT), and Material Sciences Corporation ( MSC) were all decliners today within the industrial industry with SmartHeat Inc ( HEAT) being today's featured industrial loser. SmartHeat Inc fell 13 cents (-20%) to 52 cents on light volume. Throughout the day, 325,764 shares of SmartHeat Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 476,700 shares.

SmartHeat Inc. manufactures, sells, and services plate heat exchangers (PHE) in the People's Republic of China. SmartHeat Inc has a market cap of $25.9 million and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 2.6, equal to the average industrial industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 87.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates SmartHeat as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, Ener1 Inc ( HEV), JinkoSolar ( JKS), Capstone Turbine Corporation ( CPST), and Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation ( AP) were all gainers within the industrial industry with Caterpillar Inc ( CAT) being today's featured industrial industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial industry could consider SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DIA) while those bearish on the industrial industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
