  • 4 Stocks With Industrial Strength Growth

    By Chad Henage - October 20, 2012 | Tickers: ATI, AME, RBN, ROK

    It certainly seems like the economy is improving. We see on a regular basis the improvement in housing starts, consumer sentiment, and other measures. Hoping for an investment play on a better economy I've written posts in the past about the improvement this should mean in the housing market and the auto industry. However, there is a more fundamental industry that will benefit from a better economy as well, and that is the industrial production industry. It's not hard to understand the correlation. As the economy improves, orders for products improves, and the companies providing the parts for these products benefit. With this in mind, I went to the trusty Fool.com CAPS Screener to try and find some investment ideas. I didn't want just any industrial company though, I wanted companies that had increased their earnings and revenue at a better than 10% clip over the last few years. Of the several companies the screen returned, the following looked attractive to me: Allegheny Technologies (NYSE: ATI)Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK)Ametek, Inc. (NYSE: AME), and Robbins & Myers, Inc. (NYSE: RBN).

Specifically they appear to be companies that have their own idiosyncratic profit drivers that are somewhat outside the economy. These sorts of stocks are always good to research because they allow you to create more »

    Oil well service providers have seen nice returns of late. Over the last month, Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) has gone up 22.6%, and Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI) is up 21.2%. While much of the appreciation has to do with investors looking beyond the overblown Macondo oil spill, it also has to do with strong evidence that shows that these firms actually have good fundamentals.
