The company has a P/E ratio of 18.4, above the average media industry P/E ratio of 18.1 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 11.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are 12 analysts that rate Regal Entertainment Group a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and five rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Regal Entertainment Group as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

On the positive front, Seven Arts Entertainment ( SAPX), up 18.8%, KIT Digital ( KITD), up 15.2%, Inuvo ( INUV), up 15%, and LIN TV Corporation ( TVL), up 11%, were all gainers within the media industry with Time Warner ( TWX) being today's featured media industry winner.
