Fidelity National Information Services Inc (FIS): Today's Featured Diversified Services Winner

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.

Fidelity National Information Services ( FIS) pushed the Diversified Services industry higher today making it today's featured diversified services winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.3%. By the end of trading, Fidelity National Information Services rose $0.48 (1.0%) to $46.42 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1,741,566 shares of Fidelity National Information Services exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1,534,400 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $45.66-$46.56 after having opened the day at $45.84 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $45.94. Other companies within the Diversified Services industry that increased today were: China Yida ( CNYD), up 47.5%, Digital Generation ( DGIT), up 26.4%, Hackett Group ( HCKT), up 15.0% and Information Services Group ( III), up 14.8%.

Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. provides banking and payments technology solutions worldwide. The company offers financial institution core processing, card issuer, and transaction processing services, including the national electronic funds transfer network. Fidelity National Information Services has a market cap of $13.3 billion and is part of the technology sector. Shares are up 32.0% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 6 analysts that rate Fidelity National Information Services a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 8 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Fidelity National Information Services as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Newtek Business Services ( NEWT), down 16.7%, Luna Innovations ( LUNA), down 10.8%, Atlas Resource Partners ( ARP), down 10.2% and General Employment ( JOB), down 10.0% , were all laggards within the diversified services industry with MasterCard Incorporated ( MA) being today's diversified services industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the diversified services industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Cons Services ( IYC) while those bearish on the diversified services industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Consumer Sers ( SCC).
