NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA): Today's Featured Electronics Loser

The electronics industry closed the day up 0.4%. Daystar Technologies Inc ( DSTI), Suntech Power Holdings ( STP), Rubicon Technology Inc ( RBCN), and Nortech Systems Incorporated ( NSYS) were all decliners today within the electronics industry with NVIDIA Corporation ( NVDA) being today's featured electronics loser. NVIDIA Corporation fell 16 cents (-1.1%) to $14.62 on average volume. Throughout the day, 20.2 million shares of NVIDIA Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 22.9 million shares.

NVIDIA Corporation provides visual computing, high performance computing, and mobile computing solutions that generate interactive graphics on various devices ranging from tablets and smart phones to notebooks and workstations. NVIDIA Corporation has a market cap of $8.5 billion and is part of the technology sector.

TheStreet Ratings rates NVIDIA as a hold. 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 and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

On the positive front, AuthenTec Inc ( AUTH), Enova Systems Inc ( ENA), Inphi ( IPHI), and On Track Innovations ( OTIV) were all gainers within the electronics industry with Broadcom Corporation ( BRCM) being today's featured electronics industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology ( IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor ( SSG).
