Regal Entertainment Group (RGC): Today's Featured Media Winner

Regal Entertainment Group (RGC) pushed the Media industry higher today making it today's featured media winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 2.8%. By the end of trading, Regal Entertainment Group rose 21 cents (1.4%) to $14.65 on average volume. Throughout the day, three million shares of Regal Entertainment Group exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.1 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $14.11-$14.72 after having opened the day at $14.22 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $14.44. Other companies within the Media industry that increased today were: interCLICK Inc (ICLK), up 20.8%, Envoy Capital Group Inc (ECGI), up 8.5%, Noah Education Holdings (NED), up 7.9%, and Private Media Group Inc (PRVT), up 5.8%.

Regal Entertainment Group, through its subsidiaries, operates a theatre circuit in the United States. Regal Entertainment Group has a market cap of $2.2 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 26.3, below the average media industry P/E ratio of 43.1 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 23% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Regal Entertainment Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, feeble growth in the company's earnings per share and deteriorating net income.

On the negative front, Promotora de Informaciones SA/FI ADR (PRIS), down 11.7%, Central European Media (CETV), down 11.1%, Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings Inc (CCO), down 10.2%, and Seven Arts Entertainment Inc (SAPX), down 10%, were all losers within the media industry with Focus Media (FMCN) being today's media industry loser.

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).
