TheStreet Ratings rates Ancestry.com as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

On the negative front, eDiets.com Inc ( DIET), down 9.1%, eDiets.com Inc ( DIETD), down 9.1%, Friendfinder Networks Inc ( FFN), down 9%, and Move Inc ( MOVED), down 5.4%, were all losers within the internet industry with NetEase.com Inc ( NTES) being today's internet industry loser.
