Mobile Telesystems OJSC (MBT): Today's Featured Technology Winner

Mobile Telesystems OJSC ( MBT) pushed the Technology sector higher today making it today's featured technology winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.3%. By the end of trading, Mobile Telesystems OJSC rose 50 cents (2.7%) to $18.91 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.3 million shares of Mobile Telesystems OJSC exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.6 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $18.35-$18.94 after having opened the day at $18.45 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $18.41. Other companies within the Technology sector that increased today were: ClearSign Combustion ( CLIR), up 26.2%, China Information Technology ( CNIT), up 26.1%, Synacor ( SYNC), up 15%, and Netsol Technologies ( NTWK), up 11.1%.

Mobile TeleSystems OJSC, together with its subsidiaries, provides telecommunications services primarily in the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Armenia, and Belarus. Mobile Telesystems OJSC has a market cap of $18.89 billion and is part of the telecommunications industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 13, equal to the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 25.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are three analysts that rate Mobile Telesystems OJSC a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and two rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Mobile Telesystems OJSC as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. 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, Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation ( CTSH), down 19.2%, BroadSoft ( BSFT), down 18.9%, Bottomline Technologies ( EPAY), down 15.4%, and Wireless Ronin Technologies ( RNIN), down 15%, were all losers within the technology sector with Infosys ( INFY) being today's technology sector loser.

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).
