Energizer Holdings Inc (ENR): Today's Featured Consumer Non-Durables 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.

Energizer Holdings ( ENR) pushed the Consumer Non-Durables industry higher today making it today's featured consumer non-durables winner. The industry as a whole closed the day up 1.7%. By the end of trading, Energizer Holdings rose $2.27 (2.0%) to $113.96 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 1,716,471 shares of Energizer Holdings exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 595,800 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $111.15-$114.36 after having opened the day at $111.34 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $111.69. Other companies within the Consumer Non-Durables industry that increased today were: EveryWare Global ( EVRY), up 261.8%, Standard Register ( SR), up 5.2%, CTI Industries ( CTIB), up 4.5% and Crocs ( CROX), up 2.8%.

Energizer Holdings, Inc. manufactures and sells primary batteries, portable lighting, and personal care products worldwide. It offers household and specialty batteries, including carbon zinc, alkaline, rechargeable, and lithium batteries. Energizer Holdings has a market cap of $6.1 billion and is part of the consumer goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.6, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 9.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 7 analysts that rate Energizer Holdings a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Energizer Holdings as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins 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.

On the negative front, Avon Products ( AVP), down 10.2%, Ever-Glory International Group ( EVK), down 8.8%, Resolute Forest Products ( RFP), down 7.0% and DS Healthcare Group ( DSKX), down 5.6% , were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with International Paper ( IP) being today's consumer non-durables industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
