Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras (EBR): Today's Featured Utilities Loser

The utilities sector closed the day down 0.1%. Dynegy Inc ( DYN), GreenHunter Energy Inc ( GRH), U.S. Geothermal Inc ( HTM), and UGI Corporation ( UGI) were all decliners today within the utilities sector with Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras ( EBR) being today's featured utilities loser. Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras fell 19 cents (-2%) to $9.42 on light volume. Throughout the day, 713,530 shares of Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.3 million shares.

Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras S.A. Eletrobras, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the generation, transmission, distribution, and commercialization of electric power in Brazil. Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras has a market cap of $12.7 billion and is part of the utilities industry. Shares are down 31.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Centrais Ele. Brasileira S.A. Eletrobras as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures 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 positive front, Ocean Power Technologies ( OPTT), Korea Electric Power ( KEP), China Hydroelectric ( CHC), and Huaneng Power International Inc ( HNP) were all gainers within the utilities sector with FirstEnergy ( FE) being today's featured utilities sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the utilities sector could consider Utilities Select Sector SPDR ( XLU) while those bearish on the utilities sector could consider ProShares UltraShort Utilities ( SDP).
