TheStreet would like to highlight 3 stocks pushing the industry higher today:

3. HCP (HCP) is one of the companies pushing the Real Estate industry higher today. As of noon trading, HCP is up $0.83 (2.1%) to $40.30 on average volume. Thus far, 1.5 million shares of HCP exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3.2 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $39.47-$40.32 after having opened the day at $39.49 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $39.47.

HCP, Inc. is an independent hybrid real estate investment trust. The fund invests in real estate markets of the United States. HCP has a market cap of $17.9 billion and is part of the financial sector. Shares are up 8.7% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are 3 analysts who rate HCP a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates HCP as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. Get the full HCP Ratings Report now.
