TheStreet would like to highlight 4 stocks pushing the sector higher today:

4. GATX ( GMT) is one of the companies pushing the Services sector higher today. As of noon trading, GATX is up $7.80 (15.1%) to $59.63 on heavy volume. Thus far, 461,183 shares of GATX exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 188,600 shares. The stock has ranged in price between $53.90-$59.94 after having opened the day at $53.90 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $51.83.

GATX Corporation leases, operates, manages, and remarkets assets in the rail and marine markets in North America and internationally. The company operates in four segments: Rail North America, Rail International, American Steamship Company (ASC), and Portfolio Management. GATX has a market cap of $2.4 billion and is part of the diversified services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 17.0, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 0.7% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 3 analysts who rate GATX a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 2 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates GATX as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated. Get the full GATX Ratings Report now.
