Brazilian Distribution Company (CBD): Today's Featured Services Loser

Brazilian Distribution Company (CBD) pushed the Services sector lower today making it today's featured Services loser. The sector as a whole closed the day up 1.5%. By the end of trading, Brazilian Distribution Company fell 67 cents (-1.7%) to $37.92 on light volume. Throughout the day, 206,245 shares of Brazilian Distribution Company exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 674,700 shares. The stock ranged in price between $37.20-$38.13 after having opened the day at $37.99 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $38.59. Other company's within the Services sector that declined today were: QuinStreet Inc (QNST), down 17.1%, BioScrip Inc (BIOS), down 10.1%, Dex One (DEXO), down 9.9%, and LoJack Corporation (LOJN), down 9.4%.

Companhia Brasileira de Distribuicao, together with its subsidiaries, operates as a retailer of food products, clothing, home appliances, and other products through its chain of hypermarkets, supermarkets, specialized and department stores, convenience stores, and the Internet in Brazil. Brazilian Distribution Company has a market cap of $9.9 billion and is part of the retail industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 48.5, above the average retail industry P/E ratio of 22.2 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 9.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Brazilian Distribution as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Spanish Broadcasting System Inc (SBSA), up 102%, Republic Airways Holdings Inc (RJET), up 61.3%, McCormick & Schmicks Seafood Inc (MSSR), up 27.5%, and EnerNOC Inc (ENOC), up 22.6%, were all gainers within the services sector with AutoZone Inc (AZO) being today's featured services sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the services sector could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Services (IYC) while those bearish on the services sector could consider ProShares Ultra Short Consumer Sers (SCC).
