TheStreet would like to highlight 5 stocks pushing the sector lower today:

5. Kohl's ( KSS) is one of the companies pushing the Services sector lower today. As of noon trading, Kohl's is down $0.78 (-1.5%) to $51.80 on average volume. Thus far, 1.3 million shares of Kohl's exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3.0 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $51.56-$52.63 after having opened the day at $52.56 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $52.59.

Kohl's Corporation operates department stores in the United States. Its stores offer private, exclusive, and national branded apparel, footwear, and accessories for women, men, and children; soft home products, such as sheets and pillows; and housewares targeted to middle-income customers. Kohl's has a market cap of $11.3 billion and is part of the retail industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 12.8, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 7.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 8 analysts that rate Kohl's a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 7 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Kohl's as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, increase in stock price during the past year and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share. Get the full Kohl's Ratings Report now.
