Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Corning a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 5 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Corning 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, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, CSR ( CSRE), up 177.6%, Plug Power ( PLUG), up 17.4%, Nam Tai Electronics ( NTE), up 15.6% and Himax Technologies ( HIMX), up 9.1% , were all gainers within the electronics industry with InvenSense ( INVN) being today's featured electronics industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology ( IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor ( SSG).
