Currently there are 3 analysts that rate OSI Systems a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates OSI Systems as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, China BAK Battery ( CBAK), up 31.9%, ZBB Energy Corporation ( ZBB), up 24.1%, China Ming Yang Wind Power Group ( MY), up 15.7% and UQM Technologies ( UQM), up 12.4% , were all gainers within the industrial goods sector with Precision Castparts ( PCP) being today's featured industrial goods sector leader.

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).
