Walt Disney Co (DIS): Today's Featured Services Laggard

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.

Walt Disney (DIS) pushed the Services sector lower today making it today's featured Services laggard. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.5%. By the end of trading, Walt Disney fell $0.74 (-1.2%) to $61.14 on average volume. Throughout the day, 7,165,925 shares of Walt Disney exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 7,315,600 shares. The stock ranged in price between $61.09-$61.88 after having opened the day at $61.62 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $61.88. Other companies within the Services sector that declined today were: Staples (SPLS), down 15.3%, American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), down 9.9%, Acorn Energy (ACFN), down 9.6% and Armco Metals Holdings (CNAM), down 9.6%.

The Walt Disney Company operates as an entertainment company worldwide. Its Media Networks segment engages in broadcast television network, television production and distribution, television stations, broadcast radio networks and stations, and publishing and digital operations. Walt Disney has a market cap of $110.5 billion and is part of the media industry. Shares are up 24.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 15 analysts that rate Walt Disney a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 9 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Walt Disney as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the positive front, ChinaNet Online Holdings (CNET), up 24.0%, Tuesday Morning Corporation (TUES), up 23.6%, DGSE Companies (DGSE), up 22.7% and UniTek Global Services (UNTK), up 20.3% , were all gainers within the services sector with Sears Holdings Corporation (SHLD) being today's featured services sector leader.

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