MagneTek, Inc. (NYSE: MAG) has been chosen as the current spotlight stock selection by Penny Stock Research Corporation. The article chronicles MagneTek's shift away from low-tech electrical products to a new focus on high-tech electronic products. Last year, MagneTek sold its generator business to Emerson Electric Company (NYSE: EMR) for $115 million. It followed that up by selling its motor manufacturing facilities to A. O. Smith Corporation (NYSE: AOS) for $253 million. The cash generated by this downsizing was used to pay down debt and fund a massive stock buyback program.

MagneTek has emerged as a smaller company focused on electronic products, such as lighting power products, power electronic products and motor drives and systems. The company is growing through timely acquisitions as well as strategic alliances with companies such as General Electric Corporation (NYSE: GE). All of this has led to good results from MagneTek's core businesses in the first two quarters of this fiscal year.
