Ballantyne Of Omaha Inc. (BTN): Today's Featured Consumer Goods Winner

The consumer goods sector closed the day down 2.3%. Tandy Brands Accessories ( TBAC), Le Gaga Holdings ( GAGA), Cycle Country Accessories Corporation ( ATC), and Eastman Kodak Company ( EK) were all winners today within the consumer goods sector with Ballantyne of Omaha Inc ( BTN) being today's featured consumer goods winner. Ballantyne of Omaha Inc rose 10 cents (3.1%) to $3.32 on average volume. Throughout the day, 81,526 shares of Ballantyne of Omaha Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 105,000 shares.

Ballantyne Strong, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, services, and distributes theatre and lighting systems. The company operates in two segments, Theatre and Lighting. Ballantyne of Omaha Inc has a market cap of $45.2 million and is part of the consumer durables industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 5.1, equal to the average consumer durables industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 58.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ballantyne of Omaha 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, notable return on equity and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, poor profit margins and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, AgFeed Industries Inc ( FEED), Verso Paper ( VRS), Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc ( GMCR), and Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide ( QTWW) were all losers within the consumer goods sector with Koninklijke Philips Electronics ( PHG) being today's consumer goods sector Loser Spotlight stock.

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).
