TheStreet Ratings rates Terex as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, reasonable valuation levels and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

On the negative front, China Valves Technology ( CVVT), down 14.3%, Ballard Power Systems ( BLDP), down 9.3%, China Recycling Energy Corporation ( CREG), down 9.1% and Cleantech Solutions International ( CLNT), down 7.3% , were all laggards within the industrial industry with Cummins ( CMI) 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).
