Ralph Lauren Corp (RL): Today's Featured Consumer Goods Winner

Ralph Lauren ( RL) pushed the Consumer Goods sector higher today making it today's featured consumer goods winner. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.3%. By the end of trading, Ralph Lauren rose $4.73 (2.8%) to $177 on light volume. Throughout the day, 511,089 shares of Ralph Lauren exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 795,800 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $171.32-$177.30 after having opened the day at $171.55 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $172.27. Other companies within the Consumer Goods sector that increased today were: STR Holdings ( STRI), up 27.8%, Glg Life Tech ( GLGL), up 10%, Energizer Holdings ( ENR), up 9.6%, and Balchem Corporation ( BCPC), up 9.6%.

Ralph Lauren Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, marketing, and distribution of lifestyle products. Ralph Lauren has a market cap of $10.6 billion and is part of the consumer non-durables industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 25, equal to the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 24.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are six analysts that rate Ralph Lauren a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and seven rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ralph Lauren as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the negative front, MOD-PAC Corporation ( MPAC), down 22.7%, SGOCO Group ( SGOC), down 13.2%, Exceed Company ( EDS), down 8.6%, and Peet's Coffee & Tea ( PEET), down 8.1%, were all losers within the consumer goods sector with Canon ( CAJ) being today's consumer goods sector loser.

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).
