Theragenics Corporation (TGX): Today's Featured Health Care Loser

The health care sector closed the day up 1.9%. Cormedix Inc ( CRMD), Gentiva Health Services Inc ( GTIV), Amedisys Inc ( AMED), and Uluru Inc ( ULU) were all decliners today within the health care sector with Theragenics Corporation ( TGX) being today's featured health care loser. Theragenics Corporation fell one cent (-0.8%) to $1.25 on light volume. Throughout the day, 22,598 shares of Theragenics Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 51,500 shares.

Theragenics Corporation operates as a medical device company serving the cancer treatment and surgical products markets primarily in the United States and Europe. It operates through two segments, Surgical Products and Brachytherapy Seed. Theragenics Corporation has a market cap of $45.5 million and is part of the health services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 16.8, equal to the average health services industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 16.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

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

On the positive front, Transcept Pharmaceuticals Inc ( TSPT), Mela Sciences Inc ( MELA), World Heart Corporation ( WHRT), and Tranzyme Inc ( TZYM) were all gainers within the health care sector with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company ( BMY) being today's featured health care sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the health care sector could consider Health Care Select Sector SPDR ( XLV) while those bearish on the health care sector could consider ProShares Ultra Short Health Care ( RXD).
