Throughout the day, 1.7 million shares of Ralph Lauren exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.1 million shares. The stock ranged in price between $136.91-$142.71 after having opened the day at $142.58 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $143.70.

Ralph Lauren Corporation engages in the design, marketing, and distribution of lifestyle products. Ralph Lauren has a market cap of $8.62 billion and is part of the consumer non-durables industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 20.3, above the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio of 20 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 3.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are five analysts that rate Ralph Lauren a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and eight rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ralph Lauren 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, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the positive front, 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%, were all gainers within the consumer goods sector with Campbell Soup (CPB) being today's featured consumer goods sector winner.

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).
