3 Industrial Stocks Nudging The Industry Higher

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.

All three major indices are trading down today with the Dow Jones Industrial Average ( ^DJI) trading down 28.64 points (-0.2%) at 16,839 as of Thursday, June 26, 2014, 3:55 PM ET. The NYSE advances/declines ratio sits at 1,444 issues advancing vs. 1,544 declining with 166 unchanged.

The Industrial industry as a whole was unchanged today versus the S&P 500, which was down 0.1%. Top gainers within the Industrial industry included Bonso Electronics International ( BNSO), up 3.0%, Asia Pacific Wire & Cable ( APWC), up 2.5%, Metalico ( MEA), up 8.8%, GreenHunter Resources ( GRH), up 6.3% and IntriCon ( IIN), up 3.5%.

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

IntriCon ( IIN) is one of the companies that pushed the Industrial industry higher today. IntriCon was up $0.29 (3.5%) to $8.70 on light volume. Throughout the day, 11,407 shares of IntriCon exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 34,500 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $8.26-$8.79 after having opened the day at $8.56 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $8.41.

IntriCon Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, engineers, and manufactures body-worn devices in the United States and internationally. IntriCon has a market cap of $48.9 million and is part of the industrial goods sector. Shares are up 118.2% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are no analysts who rate IntriCon a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates IntriCon as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and generally higher debt management risk.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on IIN go as follows:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 9.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 22.5%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 1500.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 136.75% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Although IIN had significant growth over the past year, our hold rating indicates that we do not recommend additional investment in this stock at the current time.
  • INTRICON CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This company has not demonstrated a clear trend in earnings over the past 2 years, making it difficult to accurately predict earnings for the coming year. During the past fiscal year, INTRICON CORP swung to a loss, reporting -$0.41 versus $0.30 in the prior year.
  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Electronic Equipment, Instruments & Components industry and the overall market, INTRICON CORP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for INTRICON CORP is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 30.80%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 2.98% trails that of the industry average.
