New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. provides private educational services primarily in China. New Oriental Education & Technology Group I has a market cap of $4.31 billion and is part of the diversified services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 31.6, below the average diversified services industry P/E ratio of 32.8 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 13.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are seven analysts that rate New Oriental Education & Technology Group I a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and three rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates New Oriental Education & Technology Group I as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.

On the positive front, China Metro-Rural Holdings (CNR), up 88.2%, Genetic Technologies (GENE), up 26.5%, QKL Stores (QKLS), up 20.2%, and Lentuo International (LAS), up 20.1%, were all gainers within the services sector with Costco Wholesale Corporation (COST) being today's featured services sector winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the services sector could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Services (IYC) while those bearish on the services sector could consider ProShares Ultra Short Consumer Sers (SCC).
