TIBCO Software Inc. (TIBX): Today's Featured Technology Winner

Editor's Note: TheStreet ratings do not represent the views of TheStreet's staff or its contributors. Ratings are established by computer based on metrics for performance (which includes growth, stock performance, efficiency and valuation) and risk (volatility and solvency). Companies with poor cash flow or high debt levels tend to earn lower ratings in our model.

TIBCO Software ( TIBX) pushed the Technology sector higher today making it today's featured technology winner. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.3%. By the end of trading, TIBCO Software rose 67 cents (2.3%) to $29.88 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.4 million shares of TIBCO Software exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.8 million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $29.09-$29.95 after having opened the day at $29.15 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $29.21. Other companies within the Technology sector that increased today were: Lexmark International ( LXK), up 13.7%, Dynasil Corporation of America ( DYSL), up 13.5%, Interphase ( INPH), up 13.3%, and RIT Technologies ( RITT), up 13.2%.

TIBCO Software Inc. provides middleware and infrastructure software worldwide. It offers products in the areas of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and core infrastructure; business optimization; and process automation and collaboration. TIBCO Software has a market cap of $4.77 billion and is part of the computer software & services industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 40.9, equal to the average computer software & services industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 22.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 11 analysts that rate TIBCO Software a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and five rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates TIBCO Software as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the negative front, Tangoe ( TNGO), down 16.9%, Eltek ( ELTK), down 13.9%, Deltathree ( DDDC), down 13.4%, and Helios & Matheson Information Technology In ( HMNY), down 10.7%, were all laggards within the technology sector with NXP Semiconductor ( NXPI) being today's technology sector laggard.

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).
