EnerSys has a market cap of $1.64 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector. Currently there are seven analysts that rate EnerSys a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates EnerSys as a buy. 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, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and attractive valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Wuhan General Group ( WUHN), down 26.4%, Tower International ( TOWR), down 9.5%, A123 Systems ( AONE), down 8.9%, and China Development Group Corporation ( CTDC), down 8.5%, were all losers within the industrial industry with Stanley Black & Decker ( SWK) being today's industrial industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial industry could consider SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DIA) while those bearish on the industrial industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
