Darling International Inc. (DAR): Today's Featured Industrial Goods Winner

Darling International ( DAR) pushed the Industrial Goods sector higher today making it today's featured industrial goods winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 1.6%. By the end of trading, Darling International rose 16 cents (1%) to $15.55 on average volume. Throughout the day, one million shares of Darling International exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.1 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $15.21-$15.57 after having opened the day at $15.22 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $15.39. Other companies within the Industrial Goods sector that increased today were: Ducommun ( DCO), up 11.7%, Fushi Copperweld ( FSIN), up 11.3%, Skyline Corporation ( SKY), up 7.6%, and India Globalization Capital ( IGC), up 7.2%.

Darling International Inc. provides rendering, cooking oil, and bakery waste recycling and recovery solutions to the food industry. The company operates in two segments, Rendering and Bakery. Darling International has a market cap of $1.78 billion and is part of the materials & construction industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 11.8, equal to the average materials & construction industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 13.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are three analysts that rate Darling International a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and one rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Darling International as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and reasonable valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Omega Flex ( OFLX), down 11.6%, PGT ( PGTI), down 11.5%, Intellicheck Mobilisa ( IDN), down 10%, and UQM Technologies ( UQM), down 9.4%, were all losers within the industrial goods sector with Eaton ( ETN) being today's industrial goods sector loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial goods sector could consider Industrial Select Sector SPDR ( XLI) while those bearish on the industrial goods sector could consider ProShares Short Dow 30 ( DOG).
