TheStreet Ratings rates Avon Products as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Female Health Company ( FHCO), down 6.9%, Orient Paper ( ONP), down 5.0%, Crocs ( CROX), down 4.5% and Verso Paper ( VRS), down 3.7% , were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with Owens-Illinois ( OI) being today's consumer non-durables industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
