The 15 Electrical Equipment stocks our community is most interested in.

People watch stocks for different reasons -- they're waiting for a dip in price, watching for a specific catalyst, gathering all the news and information that might affect stocks they already own, or considering a sell. Regardless of their motivation, we can better understand market sentiment by seeing who's watching what. With the Fool's free My Watchlist service, we have tens of thousands of people telling us the businesses that have, for whatever reason, piqued their interest.

The most-watched Electrical Equipment stock is ...
Looking at the aggregate data, we see that Jinpan International (Nasdaq: JST) is above the rest in terms of watch interest, the percentage of people keeping an eye on electrical equipment stocks in general who are specifically watching each company. And for good reason. As CAPS Member gilboy7 wrote in January:

A strong competitor in the cast resin transformer industry in Asia and Europe. It is a very competitive industry but, with a strong back log of orders and an asia-centric location Jinpan looks over sold at this price. With a 25% growth outlook over the next few years I am a buyer around $10.

Here are the rest of the top 15 most-watched companies in the industry with their watch interest, along with the stocks' CAPS rating to show the sentiment of our investing community.
