Intel Corp (INTC): Today's Featured Electronics Loser

Intel ( INTC) pushed the Electronics industry lower today making it today's featured Electronics loser. The industry as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, Intel fell 31 cents (-1.1%) to $26.55 on light volume. Throughout the day, 20.1 million shares of Intel exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 38.2 million shares. The stock ranged in price between $26.37-$26.84 after having opened the day at $26.81 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $26.86. Other company's within the Electronics industry that declined today were: Daystar Technologies ( DSTI), down 13.3%, Meade Instruments Corporation ( MEAD), down 10.1%, Spire Corporation ( SPIR), down 7.7%, and China Sunergy ( CSUN), down 7.3%.

Intel Corporation designs, manufactures, and sells integrated digital technology platforms primarily in the Asia-Pacific, the Americas, Europe, and Japan. Intel has a market cap of $135.13 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 11.4, equal to the average electronics industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 10.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 18 analysts that rate Intel a buy, two analysts rate it a sell, and 19 rate it a hold.

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

On the positive front, Microvision ( MVIS), up 28.3%, Aetrium Incorporated ( ATRM), up 12.5%, LRAD ( LRAD), up 9.4%, and Superconductor Technologies ( SCON), up 8.1%, were all gainers within the electronics industry with Cirrus Logic ( CRUS) being today's featured electronics industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology ( IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor ( SSG).
