Ingersoll-Rand (IR - Get Report) is a diversified manufacturing firm that owns brands ranging from Club Car golf carts to Schlage locks to Trane air conditioners. In general, Ingersoll-Rand's brands have been heavily affected by the recessionary headwinds of the last few years, a factor that's helped to buoy shares now that the economy is stabilizing again. Hefty exposure to construction means that improvements in heavily watched data points like housing starts and new home sales bode well for IR's income statement.
