TheStreet Ratings rates B/E Aerospace 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, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, CVD Equipment Corporation ( CVV), down 14.8%, India Globalization Capital ( IGC), down 7.2%, China Ming Yang Wind Power Group ( MY), down 6.5% and P & F Industries ( PFIN), down 6.4% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Terex ( TEX) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial goods sector could consider Industrial Select Sector SPDR ( XLI) while those bearish on the industrial goods sector could consider ProShares Short Dow 30 ( DOG).
