Allegheny Technologies Inc (ATI): Today's Featured Industrial Winner

Editor's Note: TheStreet ratings do not represent the views of TheStreet's staff or its contributors. Ratings are established by computer based on metrics for performance (which includes growth, stock performance, efficiency and valuation) and risk (volatility and solvency). Companies with poor cash flow or high debt levels tend to earn lower ratings in our model.

Allegheny Technologies ( ATI) pushed the Industrial industry higher today making it today's featured industrial winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.5%. By the end of trading, Allegheny Technologies rose 41 cents (1.4%) to $29.15 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1.5 million shares of Allegheny Technologies exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.7 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $28.52-$29.26 after having opened the day at $28.68 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $28.74. Other companies within the Industrial industry that increased today were: Broadwind Energy ( BWEN), up 7.4%, Wowjoint Holdings ( BWOW), up 5%, H&E Equipment Services ( HEES), up 3.2%, and Manitex International ( MNTX), up 3.1%.

Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI) engages in the production of specialty metals worldwide. It operates in three segments: High Performance Metals, Flat-Rolled Products, and Engineered Products. Allegheny Technologies has a market cap of $3.18 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 16.1, above the average industrial industry P/E ratio of 16 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 38% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are eight analysts that rate Allegheny Technologies a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Allegheny Technologies as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

On the negative front, A123 Systems ( AONE), down 9.4%, Intellicheck Mobilisa ( IDN), down 8.8%, China BAK Battery ( CBAK), down 7.8%, and Tower International ( TOWR), down 5.9%, were all laggards within the industrial industry with Dover Corporation ( DOV) being today's industrial industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial industry could consider SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DIA) while those bearish on the industrial industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
