Investors’ interest in the industrial stocks is evident from the Industrial Select Sector SPDR Fund’s (XLI) 24.3% gains over the past six months versus the SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF’s (SPY) 19.6% returns.
Given this backdrop, we think it could be wise to bet on industrial stocks that possess strong financials but are still undervalued. And Hitachi Ltd . (HTHIY), Amada Co., Ltd. (AMDLY) and Belden Inc . (BDC) are solid picks on that front.
