Ctrip.com International Ltd. (CTRP): Today's Featured Leisure 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.

Ctrip.com International ( CTRP) pushed the Leisure industry lower today making it today's featured Leisure laggard. The industry as a whole closed the day up 0.4%. By the end of trading, Ctrip.com International fell $0.61 (-1.2%) to $50.34 on light volume. Throughout the day, 935,508 shares of Ctrip.com International exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2,998,400 shares. The stock ranged in price between $50.08-$51.28 after having opened the day at $50.79 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $50.95. Other companies within the Leisure industry that declined today were: Bowl America Incorporated ( BWL.A), down 3.3%, Monarch Casino & Resort ( MCRI), down 2.5%, Potbelly Corporation ( PBPB), down 2.4% and Red Lion Hotels Corporation ( RLH), down 2.3%.

Ctrip.com International, Ltd., together with its subsidiaries, provides travel service for hotel accommodations, airline tickets, packaged tours, and corporate travel management in the People's Republic of China. Ctrip.com International has a market cap of $6.6 billion and is part of the services sector. Shares are up 124.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Ctrip.com International a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ctrip.com International as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Empire Resorts ( NYNY), up 6.8%, ARAMARK Holdings ( ARMK), up 4.5%, Good Times Restaurants ( GTIM), up 4.5% and Premier Exhibitions ( PRXI), up 4.3% , were all gainers within the leisure industry with Las Vegas Sands ( LVS) being today's featured leisure industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the leisure industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Leisure&Entert ( PEJ) while those bearish on the leisure industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
