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

5. POSCO ( PKX) is one of the companies pushing the Metals & Mining industry higher today. As of noon trading, POSCO is up $0.56 (0.8%) to $75.09 on average volume. Thus far, 81,971 shares of POSCO exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 195,500 shares. The stock has ranged in price between $73.79-$75.13 after having opened the day at $73.79 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $74.53.

POSCO, together with its subsidiaries, primarily manufactures and sells integrated steel products in South Korea. It operates through four segments: Steel, Trading, Construction, and Others. POSCO has a market cap of $22.7 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. Shares are down 9.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there is 1 analyst that rates POSCO a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates POSCO as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its attractive valuation levels, considering its current price compared to earnings, book value and other measures. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, poor profit margins and disappointing return on equity. Get the full POSCO Ratings Report now.
