Netflix Inc. (NFLX): Today's Featured Specialty Retail 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.

Netflix ( NFLX) pushed the Specialty Retail industry higher today making it today's featured specialty retail winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.1%. By the end of trading, Netflix rose $4.96 (1.4%) to $355.20 on light volume. Throughout the day, 2,047,349 shares of Netflix exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 3,629,500 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $347.57-$356.46 after having opened the day at $350.50 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $350.24. Other companies within the Specialty Retail industry that increased today were: Tiffany ( TIF), up 8.7%, Container Store Group ( TCS), up 4.9%, Copart ( CPRT), up 4.3% and Zale Corporation ( ZLC), up 3.9%.

Netflix, Inc. provides Internet television network service that enables subscribers to stream TV shows and movies directly on TVs, computers, and mobile devices in the United States and internationally. Netflix has a market cap of $20.6 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 292.3, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 275.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 4 analysts that rate Netflix a buy, 4 analysts rate it a sell, and 17 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Netflix as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and generally higher debt management risk.

On the negative front, Barnes & Noble ( BKS), down 6.0%, PCM ( PCMI), down 5.5%, Charles & Colvard ( CTHR), down 4.9% and Francescas Holdings ( FRAN), down 4.8% , were all laggards within the specialty retail industry with Staples ( SPLS) being today's specialty retail industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the specialty retail industry could consider SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT) while those bearish on the specialty retail industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
