TheStreet Ratings rates Fibria Celulose as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Tandy Brands Accessories ( TBAC), China Xiniya Fashion ( XNY), Parlux Fragrances Inc ( PARL), and MOD-PAC Corporation ( MPAC) were all gainers within the consumer non-durables industry with Crown Holdings Inc ( CCK) being today's featured consumer non-durables industry winner.

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).
