TheStreet Ratings rates Sealed Air Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, impressive record of earnings per share growth and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, Tandy Brands Accessories ( TBAC), down 22.5%, Ever-Glory International Group ( EVK), down 7.3%, Orient Paper ( ONP), down 5.7% and Greif ( GEF), down 4.5% , were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with Nu Skin ( NUS) being today's consumer non-durables industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ( XLP) while those bearish on the consumer non-durables industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
