NEW YORK (

TheStreet

VF Corporation

(NYSE:

VFC

) is trading at unusually high volume Tuesday with 4.5 million shares changing hands. It is currently at four times its average daily volume and trading up $7.29 (+8.1%) at $97.09 as of 3:32 p.m. ET.

industry. Shares are up 4.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

V.F. Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, manufacture, and sourcing of branded apparel and related products for men, women, and children in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.2, below the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio of 17 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 23.2.

TheStreet Ratings rates VF as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. You can view the full
