TheStreet Ratings rates Ultimate Software Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the negative front, Synacor ( SYNC), down 15.5%, SouFun Holdings ( SFUN), down 8.1%, Friendfinder Networks ( FFN), down 7%, and Qihoo 360 Technology ( QIHU), down 5.9%, were all losers within the internet industry with Baidu ( BIDU) being today's internet industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the internet industry could consider First Trust Dow Jones Internet Idx ( FDN) while those bearish on the internet industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
