Haverty Furniture Companies CL A (HVT.A): Today's Featured Retail Loser

The retail industry closed the day up 4.2%. Pharmerica Corporation ( PMC), Liberty Interactive ( LINTB), Alon Holdings Blue Square - Israel ( BSI), and China Jo-Jo Drugstores Inc ( CJJD) were all decliners today within the retail industry with Haverty Furniture Companies CL A ( HVT.A) being today's featured retail loser. Haverty Furniture Companies CL A fell 94 cents (-9.5%) to $10.79 on average volume. Throughout the day, 400 shares of Haverty Furniture Companies CL A exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 300 shares.

Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, operates as a specialty retailer of residential furniture and accessories in the United States. Haverty Furniture Companies CL A has a market cap of $33.7 million and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 46.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 23.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Haverty Furniture Companies CL A 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 and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Bidz.com Inc ( BIDZ), Builders FirstSource Inc ( BLDR), Haverty Furniture Companies Inc ( HVT), and Talbots Inc ( TLB) were all gainers within the retail industry with Wal-Mart Stores Inc ( WMT) being today's featured retail industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the retail industry could consider SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT) while those bearish on the retail industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
