Las Vegas Sands Corp (LVS): Today's Featured 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.

Las Vegas Sands (LVS) pushed the Services sector higher today making it today's featured services winner. The sector as a whole closed the day up 0.7%. By the end of trading, Las Vegas Sands rose $0.83 (1.4%) to $58.75 on average volume. Throughout the day, 5,561,665 shares of Las Vegas Sands exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 4,889,400 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $57.99-$58.96 after having opened the day at $58.30 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $57.92. Other companies within the Services sector that increased today were: Acorn International (ATV), up 19.0%, Eagle Bulk Shipping (EGLE), up 12.4%, Good Times Restaurants (GTIM), up 11.4% and Seanergy Maritime Holdings (SHIP), up 11.1%.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. develops, owns, and operates integrated resorts in Asia and the United States. Las Vegas Sands has a market cap of $46.4 billion and is part of the leisure industry. Shares are up 25.5% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 15 analysts that rate Las Vegas Sands a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 2 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Las Vegas Sands as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

On the negative front, Francescas Holdings (FRAN), down 25.9%, General Employment (JOB), down 16.0%, Ryanair Holdings (RYAAY), down 8.9% and Versar (VSR), down 7.9% , were all laggards within the services sector with SAIC (SAI) being today's services sector laggard.

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).
