Danaher Corporation (DHR): Today's Featured Industrial Goods 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.

Danaher Corporation (DHR) pushed the Industrial Goods sector higher today making it today's featured industrial goods winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.1%.

Danaher Corporation designs, manufactures, and markets professional, medical, industrial, and commercial products and services primarily in North America, Europe, and Asia/Australia. Danaher Corporation has a market cap of $37 billion and is part of the industrial industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 17, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 13.5% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 14 analysts that rate Danaher Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and two rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Danaher Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the negative front, Real Goods Solar (RSOL), down 15.4%, Intellicheck Mobilisa (IDN), down 8.1%, Electro Scientific Industries (ESIO), down 7.3%, and UQM Technologies (UQM), down 7.2%, were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CBI) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial goods sector could consider Industrial Select Sector SPDR (XLI) while those bearish on the industrial goods sector could consider ProShares Short Dow 30 (DOG).
