Netflix has a market cap of $12.0 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 506.9, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 129.1% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 6 analysts that rate Netflix a buy, 5 analysts rate it a sell, and 15 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Netflix as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally higher debt management risk.

On the negative front, Lentuo International ( LAS), down 3.8%, Barnes & Noble ( BKS), down 3.8%, Books-A-Million ( BAMM), down 2.9% and Dover Saddlery ( DOVR), down 2.2%.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the specialty retail industry could consider SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT) while those bearish on the specialty retail industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
