Delta Air Lines, Inc. provides scheduled air transportation for passengers and cargo in the United States and internationally. Its route network is centered around a system of hub and international gateway airports in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Delta Air Lines has a market cap of $14.5 billion and is part of the transportation industry. The company has a P/E ratio of 16.0, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 44.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 8 analysts that rate Delta Air Lines a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Delta Air Lines as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.

On the positive front, Globus Maritime (GLBS), down 15.6%, Green Dot (GDOT), down 13.4%, ALCO Stores (ALCS), down 9.7% and Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation (BGFV), down 9.2% , were all gainers within the services sector with Virgin Media (VMED) being today's featured services sector leader.

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).
