Currently there are no analysts that rate WebMD Health Corporation a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and seven rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates WebMD Health Corporation as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its expanding profit margins over time. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Bridgeline Digital ( BLIN), up 59.6%, Deltathree ( DDDC), up 33.3%, BOS Better Online Solutions ( BOSC), up 18.7%, and Spire Corporation ( SPIR), up 18.2%, were all gainers within the technology sector with Texas Instruments ( TXN) being today's featured technology sector winner.
