TheStreet Ratings rates Sinclair Broadcast Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Entravision Communications Corporation ( EVC), down 11.7%, Gray Television ( GTN), down 7.2%, Gray Television ( GTN.A), down 7.2% and RealD ( RLD), down 5.9% , were all laggards within the media industry with Twenty-First Century Fox ( FOXA) being today's media industry laggard.
