Leucadia National Corporation (LUK): Today's Featured Conglomerates 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.

Leucadia National Corporation (LUK) pushed the Conglomerates sector higher today making it today's featured conglomerates winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.5%. By the end of trading, Leucadia National Corporation rose $0.34 (1.2%) to $27.73 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1,520,174 shares of Leucadia National Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,119,100 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $27.11-$27.73 after having opened the day at $27.17 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $27.39. Other companies within the Conglomerates sector that increased today were: Pingtan Marine Enterprise (PME), up 6.8% and China Growth Equity Investment (CGEI), up 6.8%.

Leucadia National Corporation, through its subsidiary, Jefferies Group LLC, primarily operates in the investment banking sector. Leucadia National Corporation has a market cap of $9.9 billion and is part of the food & beverage industry. Shares are up 13.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Leucadia National Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, compelling growth in net income, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Dex Media (DXM), down 4.8%, Lydall (LDL), down 3.1%, SAExploration Holdings (SAEX), down 2.7% and Trio Merger (TRIO), down 2.7%.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the conglomerates sector could consider SPDR Trust Series 1 (SPY) while those bearish on the conglomerates sector could consider ProShares Short S&P 500 (SH).
