3. Republic Services ( RSG) is one of the companies pushing the Industrial Goods sector higher today. As of noon trading, Republic Services is up $0.38 (1.2%) to $33.11 on average volume. Thus far, 819,398 shares of Republic Services exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.4 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $32.57-$33.13 after having opened the day at $32.73 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $32.73.

Republic Services, Inc. is a provider of services in the domestic non-hazardous solid waste industry. The Company provides non-hazardous solid waste collection services for commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers through 139 collection companies in 22 states. Republic Services has a market cap of $11.8 billion and is part of the materials & construction industry. Shares are up 11.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 5 analysts that rate Republic Services a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Republic Services as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. Get the full Republic Services Ratings Report now.
