Shares are up 18.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are eight analysts that rate Brunswick Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and two rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Brunswick Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. 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, Entertainment Gaming Asia ( EGT), down 5.5%, Global-Tech Advanced Innovations ( GAI), down 4.9%, Movado Group ( MOV), down 4.2%, and Emerson Radio ( MSN), down 3.8%, were all losers within the consumer durables industry with Mattel ( MAT) 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).
