TheStreet would like to highlight 5 stocks pushing the industry higher today:

5. ASML ( ASML) is one of the companies pushing the Electronics industry higher today. As of noon trading, ASML is up $1.15 (1.4%) to $83.28 on light volume. Thus far, 405,225 shares of ASML exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.7 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $82.58-$83.37 after having opened the day at $82.61 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $82.13.

ASML Holding NV engages in designing, manufacturing, marketing, and servicing semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits or chips worldwide. ASML has a market cap of $33.2 billion and is part of the technology sector. Shares are up 26.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 9 analysts that rate ASML a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 4 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates ASML as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, increase in stock price during the past year, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share. Get the full ASML Ratings Report now.
