Staar Surgical (STAA): Today's Featured Wholesale Loser

The wholesale industry closed the day down 1.7%. Chindex International Inc ( CHDX), Rada Electronics Industries Inc ( RADA), China Armco Metals Inc ( CNAM), and L.B. Foster Company ( FSTR) were all decliners today within the wholesale industry with Staar Surgical ( STAA) being today's featured wholesale loser. Staar Surgical fell $1.26 (-12.7%) to $8.69 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 936,087 shares of Staar Surgical exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 367,900 shares.

STAAR Surgical Company, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, and sells implantable lenses for the cataracts and refractive surgery. Staar Surgical has a market cap of $345.3 million and is part of the services sector. Shares are up 63.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Staar Surgical 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 solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

On the positive front, China Metro-Rural Holdings ( CNR), InfoSonics Corporation ( IFON), Bluelinx Holdings Inc ( BXC), and China Auto Logistics Inc ( CALI) were all gainers within the wholesale industry with Anixter International Inc ( AXE) being today's featured wholesale industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the wholesale industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Goods ( IYK) while those bearish on the wholesale industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
