Corning Inc (GLW): Today's Featured Electronics 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.

Corning (GLW) pushed the Electronics industry higher today making it today's featured electronics winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.3%. By the end of trading, Corning rose 13 cents (1.2%) to $11.18 on average volume. Throughout the day, 12.9 million shares of Corning exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 14 million shares.

Corning Incorporated produces specialty glasses, ceramics, and related materials worldwide. The company operates in five segments: Display Technologies, Telecommunications, Environmental Technologies, Specialty Materials, and Life Sciences. Corning has a market cap of $16.11 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 8.7, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 16% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 11 analysts that rate Corning a buy, three analysts rate it a sell, and five rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Corning as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Superconductor Technologies (SCON), down 34.2%, Digital Power Corporation (DPW), down 28.3%, Spire Corporation (SPIR), down 18.4%, and Chipmos Technologies Bermuda (IMOS), down 11%, were all laggards within the electronics industry with Intel (INTC) being today's electronics industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology (IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor (SSG).
