Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, provides telecommunications services to residential and corporate customers in Japan. Nippon Telegraph & Telephone has a market cap of $50.84 billion and is part of the telecommunications industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 10.1, above the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio of 9.3 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

Currently there are no analysts that rate Nippon Telegraph & Telephone a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Nippon Telegraph & Telephone as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its growth in earnings per share. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, ModusLink Global Solutions ( MLNK), down 34.7%, Globalstar Incorporated ( GSAT), down 15.7%, Tel Instrument Electronics Corporation ( TIK), down 13.3%, and Ubiquiti Networks ( UBNT), down 12.2%, were all losers within the technology sector with Siemens ( SI) 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).
