TheStreet Ratings rates Gardner Denver as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, A.M. Castle ( CAS), down 16.8%, China Advanced Construction Materials Group ( CADC), down 10.9%, Skyline Corporation ( SKY), down 10.6%, and Wowjoint Holdings ( BWOW), down 9.4%, were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Stanley Black & Decker ( SWK) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.
