The company has a P/E ratio of 21.2, above the average media industry P/E ratio of 0.9 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 0.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are five analysts that rate Grupo Televisa S.A a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Grupo Televisa S.A as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, generally poor debt management and disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Charm Communications ( CHRM), down 7.1%, Focus Media ( FMCN), down 6.9%, AirMedia Group ( AMCN), down 6.5%, and ChinaNet Online Holdings ( CNET), down 4.8%, were all losers within the media industry with Discovery Communications ( DISCA) being today's media industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the media industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Media ( PBS) while those bearish on the media industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
