Citrix Systems Inc. (CTXS): Today's Featured Computer Software & Services Laggard

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.

Citrix Systems ( CTXS) pushed the Computer Software & Services industry lower today making it today's featured Computer Software & Services laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.6%. By the end of trading, Citrix Systems fell $1.36 (-2.3%) to $57.93 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.8 million shares of Citrix Systems exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.4 million shares.

Citrix Systems, Inc. designs, develops, and markets technology solutions to deliver IT services on-demand worldwide. Citrix Systems has a market cap of $11.23 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 32.9, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 0.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 17 analysts that rate Citrix Systems a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and nine rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Citrix Systems 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 and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Sapiens International Corporation ( SPNS), up 9.2%, China Digital TV ( STV), up 8%, Edgewater Technology ( EDGW), up 7%, and Intellicheck Mobilisa ( IDN), up 6.3%, were all gainers within the computer software & services industry with Catamaran ( CTRX) being today's featured computer software & services industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the computer software & services industry could consider iShares S&P NA Tech Software Idx ( IGV) while those bearish on the computer software & services industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
