The consumer non-durables industry closed the day up 1.6%. Liz Claiborne Inc ( LIZ), Spartech Corporation ( SEH), Mannatech Inc ( MTEX), and China Xiniya Fashion ( XNY) were all winners today within the consumer non-durables industry with Procter & Gamble ( PG) being today's featured consumer non-durables winner.

The Procter & Gamble Company provides consumer packaged goods in the United States and internationally. Procter & Gamble has a market cap of $178.1 billion and is part of the consumer goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 16.5, equal to the average consumer non-durables industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 0.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates The Procter & Gamble as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, Joe's Jeans Inc ( JOEZ), Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc ( FOH), China Shengda Packaging Group Inc ( CPGI), and SodaStream International ( SODA) were all losers within the consumer non-durables industry with Under Armour Inc ( UA) being today's consumer non-durables industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
