TheStreet Ratings rates Tenaris 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, expanding profit margins, increase in stock price during the past year and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Exide Technologies ( XIDE), down 15.8%, Blount International ( BLT), down 8.8%, LGL Group ( LGL), down 8.6% and ExOne ( XONE), down 6.3% , were all laggards within the industrial industry with Emerson Electric ( EMR) being today's industrial industry laggard.

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).
