TheStreet Ratings rates Dover as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Mueller Industries Inc ( MLI), ADA-ES Inc ( ADES), Flow International Corporation ( FLOW), and Astec Industries Inc ( ASTE) were all losers within the industrial industry with General Electric ( GE) being today's industrial industry Loser Spotlight stock.
