TheStreet Ratings rates B/E Aerospace as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Exide Technologies ( XIDE), down 15.8%, Blount International ( BLT), down 8.8%, LGL Group ( LGL), down 8.6% and Integrated Electrical Services ( IESC), down 6.8% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Weyerhaeuser ( WY) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.
