AOL Inc. (AOL): Today's Featured Internet Winner

The internet industry closed the day down 1.2%. Innodata Isogen Corporation ( INOD), ModusLink Global Solutions Inc ( MLNK), Local.com Corporation ( LOCM), and ICG Group Inc ( ICGE) were all winners today within the internet industry with AOL Inc ( AOL) being today's featured internet winner. AOL Inc rose 31 cents (2.6%) to $12.25 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.5 million shares of AOL Inc exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.8 million shares.

AOL Inc. operates as a Web services company that offers a suite of brands and offerings for the worldwide audience. Its business spans online content, products, and services for consumers, publishers, and advertisers. The company produces digital content and sells display advertising. AOL Inc. AOL Inc has a market cap of $1.3 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 5.8, equal to the average internet industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 47.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates AOL as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Youku.com Inc ( YOKU), SINA Corporation ( SINA), SouFun Holdings ( SFUN), and Baidu Inc ( BIDU) were all losers within the internet industry with Yahoo Inc ( YHOO) being today's internet industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the internet industry could consider First Trust Dow Jones Internet Idx ( FDN) while those bearish on the internet industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
