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

3. Broadcom ( BRCM) is one of the companies pushing the Electronics industry higher today. As of noon trading, Broadcom is up $0.26 (0.7%) to $37.12 on light volume. Thus far, 2.5 million shares of Broadcom exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 8.3 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $36.64-$37.13 after having opened the day at $36.68 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $36.86.

Broadcom Corporation provides semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications. Its products offer voice, video, data, and multimedia connectivity in the home, office, and mobile environments. Broadcom has a market cap of $19.8 billion and is part of the technology sector. Shares are up 24.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are 21 analysts who rate Broadcom a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 11 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Broadcom 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, good cash flow from operations, 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. Get the full Broadcom Ratings Report now.
