Generac Holdings Inc. (GNRC): Today's Featured Industrial Goods Winner

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Generac Holdings ( GNRC) pushed the Industrial Goods sector higher today making it today's featured industrial goods winner. The sector as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, Generac Holdings rose $0.48 (1.1%) to $42.78 on light volume. Throughout the day, 612,360 shares of Generac Holdings exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,106,200 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $42.01-$42.97 after having opened the day at $42.02 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $42.30. Other companies within the Industrial Goods sector that increased today were: China Valves Technology ( CVVT), up 13.7%, Guanwei Recycling ( GPRC), up 13.4%, Euro Tech Holdings Company ( CLWT), up 11.9% and Frontline ( FRO), up 7.7%.

Generac Holdings Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets a range of generators and other engine powered products for the residential, light commercial, industrial, and construction markets in the United States Canada, and Mexico. Generac Holdings has a market cap of $2.9 billion and is part of the industrial industry. Shares are up 23.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are 6 analysts that rate Generac Holdings a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Generac Holdings as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, Cleantech Solutions International ( CLNT), down 9.8%, Compx International ( CIX), down 8.6%, Global-Tech Advanced Innovations ( GAI), down 6.9% and China Advanced Construction Materials Group ( CADC), down 6.8% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Allegheny Technologies ( ATI) 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).
