Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

AMC Networks ( AMCX) pushed the Media industry higher today making it today's featured media winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.4%. By the end of trading, AMC Networks rose $1.43 (2.1%) to $70.84 on average volume. Throughout the day, 646,449 shares of AMC Networks exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 482,500 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $69.10-$70.86 after having opened the day at $69.31 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $69.41. Other companies within the Media industry that increased today were: Liberty Media Corporation Class A ( LMCA), up 31.1%, ChinaNet Online Holdings ( CNET), up 7.7%, Tiger Media ( IDI), up 7.3% and Cinemark Holdings ( CNK), up 4.2%.

AMC Networks Inc. owns and operates cable television's brands delivering content to audiences, and a platform to distributors and advertisers in the United States and internationally.

TheStreet Ratings rates AMC Networks as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, CTC Media ( CTCM), down 8.0%, Point.360 ( PTSX), down 6.8%, Charm Communications ( CHRM), down 5.8% and Dolan ( DM), down 5.7% , were all laggards within the media industry with Time Warner Cable ( TWC) being today's media industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the media industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Media ( PBS) while those bearish on the media industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
