By the end of trading, Grupo Televisa S.A rose $1.28 (6.3%) to $21.74 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 3.5 million shares of Grupo Televisa S.A exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.7 million shares.

Grupo Televisa, S.A.B., together with its subsidiaries, operates as a media company in Mexico and internationally. It operates in seven segments: Television Broadcasting, Pay Television Networks, Programming Exports, Publishing, Sky, Cable and Telecom, and Other Businesses. Grupo Televisa S.A has a market cap of $11.44 billion and is part of the media industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 21.2, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 2.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are two analysts that rate Grupo Televisa S.A a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and four rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Grupo Televisa S.A as a buy. Among the primary strengths of the company is its solid financial position based on a variety of debt and liquidity measures that we have evaluated. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Tessco Technologies ( TESS), down 26.7%, Wayside Technology Group ( WSTG), down 19.4%, Fortune Industries ( FFI), down 14.3%, and China HGS Real Estate ( HGSH), down 13.5%, were all losers within the services sector with Buffalo Wild Wings ( BWLD) 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).
