Plum Creek Timber Co Inc (PCL): Today's Featured Industrial Goods Laggard

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.

Plum Creek Timber (PCL) pushed the Industrial Goods sector lower today making it today's featured Industrial Goods laggard. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.5%. By the end of trading, Plum Creek Timber fell $0.59 (-1.3%) to $43.72 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1,155,323 shares of Plum Creek Timber exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 842,100 shares. The stock ranged in price between $43.15-$44.94 after having opened the day at $44.75 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $44.31. Other companies within the Industrial Goods sector that declined today were: Global-Tech Advanced Innovations (GAI), down 9.9%, Allied Motion Technologies (AMOT), down 7.9%, Stock Building Supply Holdings (STCK), down 7.3% and Homex Development (HXM), down 7.3%.

Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. is a publicly owned real estate investment trust (REIT). The trust owns and manages timberlands in the United States. Its products include lumber products, plywood, medium density fiberboard, and related by-products, such as wood chips. Plum Creek Timber has a market cap of $7.2 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Currently there are 2 analysts that rate Plum Creek Timber a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 4 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Plum Creek Timber as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, revenue growth, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the positive front, JinkoSolar (JKS), up 14.6%, China Valves Technology (CVVT), up 13.4%, GreenHunter Resources (GRH), up 9.8% and Euro Tech Holdings Company (CLWT), up 9.2% , were all gainers within the industrial goods sector with Honeywell International (HON) being today's featured industrial goods sector leader.

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).
