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.

TheStreet Ratings Group would like to highlight 3 stocks that pushed the sector lower today:

Coca-Cola Femsa SAB de CV ( KOF) is one of the companies that pushed the Consumer Goods sector lower today. Coca-Cola Femsa SAB de CV was down $2.66 (2.4%) to $110.14 on light volume. Throughout the day, 25,787 shares of Coca-Cola Femsa SAB de CV exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 71,600 shares.

STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

TheStreet Ratings rates Coca-Cola Femsa SAB de CV as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on KOF go as follows:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 21.4%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Beverages industry average. The net income increased by 2.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $208.75 million to $214.45 million.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.55, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.79 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • The gross profit margin for COCA-COLA FEMSA SAB DE CV is rather high; currently it is at 51.35%. Regardless of KOF's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 6.47% trails the industry average.
  • COCA-COLA FEMSA SAB DE CV's earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, COCA-COLA FEMSA SAB DE CV reported lower earnings of $4.28 versus $5.11 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.66 versus $4.28).
