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.

CH Robinson Worldwide (CHRW) pushed the Services sector higher today making it today's featured services winner. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.1%.

C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., a third-party logistics company, provides freight transportation services and logistics solutions to companies in various industries worldwide. CH Robinson Worldwide has a market cap of $9.83 billion and is part of the transportation industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 22.2, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 12.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are seven analysts that rate CH Robinson Worldwide a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 15 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates CH Robinson Worldwide 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, notable return on equity, increase in net income and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Pandora Media (P), down 17.5%, Sino-Global Shipping America (SINO), down 12.7%, LodgeNet Interactive Corporation (LNET), down 11.7%, and Mitcham Industries (MIND), down 11.6%, were all laggards within the services sector with Time Warner (TWX) being today's services sector laggard.

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).
