The ADT Corporation (ADT): 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.

ADT Corporation (ADT) pushed the Diversified Services industry higher today making it today's featured diversified services winner. The industry as a whole was unchanged today. By the end of trading, ADT Corporation rose $0.78 (1.9%) to $40.94 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2,432,868 shares of ADT Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2,998,100 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $40.19-$41.03 after having opened the day at $40.20 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $40.16. Other companies within the Diversified Services industry that increased today were: Carriage Services (CSV), up 10.2%, China HGS Real Estate (HGSH), up 9.5%, Pointer Telocation (PNTR), up 7.9% and ENGlobal Corporation (ENG), up 7.8%.

The ADT Corporation provides electronic security, interactive home and business automation, and related monitoring services under the ADT, ADT Pulse, and Companion Service brands to residential and small business customers in the United States and Canada. ADT Corporation has a market cap of $8.1 billion and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 13.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 3 analysts that rate ADT Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates ADT Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive.

On the negative front, CTPartners Executive Search (CTP), down 10.8%, Bioanalytical Systems (BASI), down 10.5%, Mastech Holdings (MHH), down 9.3% and China Yida (CNYD), down 6.5% , were all laggards within the diversified services industry with New Oriental Education & Technology Group I (EDU) 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).
