By the end of trading, Brazilian Distribution Company rose 21 cents (0.6%) to $38.20 on light volume. Throughout the day, 326,062 shares of Brazilian Distribution Company exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 607,900 shares.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuic o engages in the retail of food and non-food products to individual consumers through its chain of hypermarkets, supermarkets, specialized and department stores, and the Internet. Brazilian Distribution Company has a market cap of $9.86 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 48.5, above the average retail industry P/E ratio of 25.1 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 4.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are two analysts that rate Brazilian Distribution Company a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Brazilian Distribution Company as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, generally poor debt management and disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Men's Wearhouse ( MW), down 18.9%, Tilly's ( TLYS), down 6.8%, Michael Kors Holdings ( KORS), down 6.6%, and Pacific Sunwear ( PSUN), down 6.5%, were all losers within the retail industry with CVS Caremark ( CVS) being today's retail industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the retail industry could consider SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT) while those bearish on the retail industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
