Currently there are two analysts that rate Koninklijke Philips Electronics a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

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

On the negative front, Industrie Natuzzi ( NTZ), down 7.5%, Kid Brands ( KID), down 6.4%, Fabrinet ( FN), down 4.5%, and Harman International Industries ( HAR), down 3.9%, were all losers within the consumer durables industry with VeriFone Systems ( PAY) being today's consumer durables industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer durables industry could consider Consumer Discretionary Sel Sec SPDR ( XLY) while those bearish on the consumer durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
