Interface Inc. (IFSIA): Today's Featured Industrial Loser

The industrial industry closed the day up 5%. Ener1 Inc ( HEV), Unifi Inc ( UFI), Dixie Group Inc ( DXYN), and Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation ( AP) were all decliners today within the industrial industry with Interface Inc ( IFSIA) being today's featured industrial loser. Interface Inc fell 7 cents (-0.5%) to $13.17 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 1.4 million shares of Interface Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 481,800 shares.

Interface, Inc. engages in the design, production, and sale of modular and broadloom carpets, and other floor covering products for the commercial, institutional, and residential markets primarily in the Americas, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific. Interface Inc has a market cap of $788.5 million and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 39.6, below the average industrial industry P/E ratio of 40.8 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 15.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Interface as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in net income and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, Kadant Inc ( KAI), Terex ( TEX), A.M. Castle ( CAS), and Ameresco Inc ( AMRC) were all gainers within the industrial industry with General Electric ( GE) being today's featured industrial industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial industry could consider SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DIA) while those bearish on the industrial industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
