Mobile Telesystems OJSC ( MBT) pushed the Telecommunications industry higher today making it today's featured telecommunications winner. The industry as a whole was unchanged today.

Throughout the day, 1,175,095 shares of Mobile Telesystems OJSC exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,900,400 shares.

Currently there are 4 analysts that rate Mobile Telesystems OJSC a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 2 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Mobile Telesystems OJSC as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins, increase in stock price during the past year and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Alvarion ( ALVR), down 46.0%, Alaska Communications Systems Group ( ALSK), down 14.4%, Deltathree ( DDDC), down 7.6% and Partner Communications Company ( PTNR), down 4.7% , were all laggards within the telecommunications industry with Windstream ( WIN) being today's telecommunications industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the telecommunications industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Telecom ( IYZ) while those bearish on the telecommunications industry could consider ProShares Ult Sht Telecommunication ( TLL).
