Currently there are 7 analysts that rate Energizer Holdings a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Energizer Holdings as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, American Apparel ( APP), down 13.9%, DS Healthcare Group ( DSKX), down 9.4%, Forward Industries ( FORD), down 7.2% and Zep ( ZEP), down 7.0% , were all laggards within the consumer non-durables industry with Goodyear Tire & Rubber ( GT) 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).
