TheStreet Ratings rates Cummins 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, solid stock price performance, increase in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, CVD Equipment Corporation ( CVV), down 4.7%, Nidec Corporation ( NJ), down 4.4%, DigitalGlobe ( DGI), down 4.3% and NF Energy Saving ( NFEC), down 4.2% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with TransDigm Group ( TDG) 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).
