Some robotic stocks are defying the down markets

June 14, 2012

Stocks of industrial robot makers Adept, Denso, Yushin and Fanuc are doing well year-to-date as are service robot makers Swisslog, Technip, Sohgo Alsok, Thermo Fisher, Perkin Elmer and Accuray.
Ancillary businesses to the robotics industry bucking the trend include IsraVision, Jenoptik, Harmonic Drive (JP), Keyence and Cimetrix.
Surprisingly, defense conglomerates with a robotics component like Qinetiq, Dassault, Exponent, EADS, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Teledyne and Textron are also outperforming the year-to-date markets.
