Net Communications Services Inc. (NETC): Today's Featured Media Winner

The media industry closed the day down 3.1%. ChinaNet Online Holdings Inc ( CNET), Liberty Capital ( LCPBD), Bona Film Group ( BONA), and China Mass Media ( CMM) were all winners today within the media industry with Net Communications Services Inc ( NETC) being today's featured media winner. Net Communications Services Inc rose 36 cents (4.5%) to $8.21 on light volume. Throughout the day, 9,726 shares of Net Communications Services Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 15,700 shares.

Net Servicos de Comunicacao S.A., through its subsidiaries, provides cable television, Internet access, and voice services in Brazil. It offers cable television services under the 'NET' brand name through various cable networks located in the largest cities of Brazil. Net Communications Services Inc has a market cap of $2.7 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.9, above the average media industry P/E ratio of 10.8 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 43.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Net Communications Services as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in net income and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, RealD Inc ( RLD), Seven Arts Entertainment Inc ( SAPX), Dex One ( DEXO), and Entravision Communications Corporation ( EVC) were all losers within the media industry with Focus Media ( FMCN) being today's media industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the media industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Media ( PBS) while those bearish on the media industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
