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, compelling growth in net income, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Tecumseh Products ( TECUB), down 21.7%, Trex ( TREX), down 9.8%, L S Starrett ( SCX), down 7.2% and Ballard Power Systems ( BLDP), down 6.4% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with Fluor ( FLR) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.
