Nippon Telegraph And Telephone Corporation (NTT): Today's Featured Technology Loser

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation ( NTT) pushed the Technology sector lower today making it today's featured Technology loser. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.5%. By the end of trading, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation fell 30 cents (-1.2%) to $25.08 on light volume. Throughout the day, 277,157 shares of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 594,300 shares. The stock ranged in price between $25.07-$25.22 after having opened the day at $25.11 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $25.38.

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, provides telecommunications services to residential and business customers in Japan. Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation has a market cap of $64.93 billion and is part of the telecommunications industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 12.5, above the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio of 11.2 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 10.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Nippon Telegraph and Telephone as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Netlist Inc ( NLST), up 22.3%, VanceInfo Technologies Inc ( VIT), up 16.8%, Daystar Technologies Inc ( DSTI), up 13.8%, and Maxcom Telecomunicaciones S.A.B. de C.V ( MXT), up 12.6%, were all gainers within the technology sector with Dell Inc ( DELL) being today's featured technology sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the technology sector could consider Technology Select Sector SPDR ( XLK) while those bearish on the technology sector could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
