TheStreet Ratings rates Harbin Electric as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Omega Flex Inc ( OFLX), Broadwind Energy Inc ( BWEN), Park-Ohio Holdings ( PKOH), and Wowjoint Holdings ( BWOW) were all losers within the industrial industry with ABB ( ABB) being today's industrial industry Loser Spotlight stock.
