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).
