TheStreet Ratings rates B/E Aerospace as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, expanding profit margins, solid stock price performance and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Meritage Homes ( MTH), down 8.2%, China BAK Battery ( CBAK), down 6.2%, Intellicheck Mobilisa ( IDN), down 5.3% and Lincoln Electric Holdings ( LECO), down 4.9% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Valmont Industries ( VMI) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.
