Campbell Soup Co (CPB): Today's Featured Consumer Goods Winner

Campbell Soup ( CPB) pushed the Consumer Goods sector higher today making it today's featured consumer goods winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.4%. By the end of trading, Campbell Soup rose 25 cents (0.8%) to $32.86 on average volume. Throughout the day, two million shares of Campbell Soup exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.1 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $32.49-$33 after having opened the day at $32.69 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $32.61. Other companies within the Consumer Goods sector that increased today were: ATC Venture Group ( ATC), up 11.1%, VeriFone Systems ( PAY), up 10.9%, Cereplast ( CERP), up 9.6%, and Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide ( QTWW), up 9.2%.

Campbell Soup Company, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the manufacture and marketing of branded convenience food products worldwide. Campbell Soup has a market cap of $10.34 billion and is part of the food & beverage industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.2, above the average food & beverage industry P/E ratio of 14.1 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 1.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there is one analyst that rates Campbell Soup a buy, three analysts rate it a sell, and 12 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Campbell Soup as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, Champion Industries ( CHMP), down 16.5%, Origin Agritech ( SEED), down 12.9%, Northern Technologies International ( NTIC), down 12%, and Forward Industries ( FORD), down 10.5%, were all losers within the consumer goods sector with Ralph Lauren ( RL) being today's consumer goods sector loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer goods sector could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Goods ( IYK) while those bearish on the consumer goods sector could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
