Suncor Energy Inc (SU): Today's Featured Energy Laggard

Suncor Energy ( SU) pushed the Energy industry lower today making it today's featured Energy laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.5%. By the end of trading, Suncor Energy fell 33 cents (-1%) to $31.94 on light volume. Throughout the day, 2.6 million shares of Suncor Energy exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 4.8 million shares. The stock ranged in price between $31.76-$32.28 after having opened the day at $32.03 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $32.27. Other companies within the Energy industry that declined today were: GeoMet ( GMET), down 24.8%, Willbros Group ( WG), down 21.3%, ATP Oil & Gas ( ATPG), down 15.3%, and Geokinetics ( GOK), down 14.9%.

Suncor Energy Inc., together with its subsidiaries, operates as an integrated energy company. Suncor Energy has a market cap of $49.1 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 11, below the average energy industry P/E ratio of 11.4 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 10.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 11 analysts that rate Suncor Energy a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Suncor Energy as a hold. 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 and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and poor profit margins.

On the positive front, GeoPetro Resources Company ( GPR), up 22.3%, Gulfport Energy Corporation ( GPOR), up 17.2%, Delek US Holdings ( DK), up 10%, and HKN ( HKN), up 7.1%, were all gainers within the energy industry with ConocoPhillips ( COP) being today's featured energy industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the energy industry could consider Energy Select Sector SPDR ( XLE) while those bearish on the energy industry could consider Proshares Short Oil & Gas ( DDG).
