Pentair Inc. (PNR): Today's Featured Industrial Winner

Pentair ( PNR) pushed the Industrial industry higher today making it today's featured industrial winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.8%. By the end of trading, Pentair rose 37 cents (0.9%) to $42.43 on average volume. Throughout the day, 813,006 shares of Pentair exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 984,000 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $41.97-$42.80 after having opened the day at $42.08 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $42.06. Other companies within the Industrial industry that increased today were: Tecumseh Products Company ( TECUA), up 38.6%, Tecumseh Products Company ( TECUB), up 33.8%, NN ( NNBR), up 5.8%, and A123 Systems ( AONE), up 5.4%.

Pentair, Inc. operates as a diversified industrial manufacturing company worldwide. Pentair has a market cap of $4.31 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 98.8, equal to the average industrial industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 26.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are five analysts that rate Pentair a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and seven rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Pentair as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Servotronics ( SVT), down 19%, Arotech Corporation ( ARTX), down 16.1%, China Recycling Energy Corporation ( CREG), down 13.2%, and Cleantech Solutions International ( CLNT), down 10.8%, were all losers within the industrial industry with Joy Global ( JOY) being today's industrial industry loser.

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).
