TheStreet Ratings rates Eaton Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Intellicheck Mobilisa ( IDN), down 32.5%, MagneGas Corporation ( MNGA), down 28.4%, Desarrolladora Homex SAB de CV ADR ( HXM), down 11.2% and China Recycling Energy Corporation ( CREG), down 10.3% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Sturm Ruger & Company ( RGR) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.
