Time Warner Inc (TWX): Today's Featured Services Winner

Time Warner ( TWX) pushed the Services sector higher today making it today's featured services winner. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.1%. By the end of trading, Time Warner rose 61 cents (1.6%) to $38.73 on average volume. Throughout the day, six million shares of Time Warner exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 6.1 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $38.15-$38.88 after having opened the day at $38.15 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $38.12. Other companies within the Services sector that increased today were: Seven Arts Entertainment ( SAPX), up 38.2%, Digital Generation ( DGIT), up 22.8%, Westinghouse Solar ( WEST), up 22.1%, and Odyssey Marine Exploration ( OMEX), up 17.1%.

Time Warner Inc. operates as a media and entertainment company in the United States and internationally. It operates in three segments: Networks, Film and TV Entertainment, and Publishing. Time Warner has a market cap of $36.66 billion and is part of the media industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.1, equal to the average media industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 5.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 16 analysts that rate Time Warner a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and nine rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Time Warner as a buy. 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, attractive valuation levels, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Lime Energy ( LIME), down 44.8%, New Oriental Education & Technology Group I ( EDU), down 34.3%, FreeSeas ( FREE), down 20.5%, and Fortune Industries ( FFI), down 11.8%, were all losers within the services sector with J.B. Hunt Transport Services ( JBHT) being today's services sector loser.

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).
