Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. through its subsidiaries, rents and leases vehicles through company owned and franchised stores under Dollar and the Thrifty brand names primarily in the United States and Canada. The company also operates a franchised retail used car sales network. Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc has a market cap of $1.89 billion and is part of the diversified services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.7, equal to the average diversified services industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group 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 expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, China CGame Inc ( CCGM), down 15%, Newlead Holdings ( NEWL), down 14.9%, Casual Male Retail Group Inc ( CMRG), down 13.1%, and China Armco Metals Inc ( CNAM), down 12.5%, were all losers within the services sector with Yum Brands Inc ( YUM) being today's services sector loser.

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).
