TheStreet would like to highlight 3 stocks pushing the sector higher today:

3. CBS Corporation ( CBS) is one of the companies pushing the Services sector higher today. As of noon trading, CBS Corporation is up $0.57 (0.9%) to $66.48 on light volume. Thus far, 1.7 million shares of CBS Corporation exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 5.1 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $65.74-$66.58 after having opened the day at $66.07 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $65.91.

CBS Corporation operates as a mass media company in the United States and internationally. It operates in five segments: Entertainment, Cable Networks, Publishing, Local Broadcasting, and Outdoor Americas. CBS Corporation has a market cap of $36.5 billion and is part of the media industry. Shares are up 3.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are 18 analysts who rate CBS Corporation a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates CBS Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and notable return on equity. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results. Get the full CBS Corporation Ratings Report now.
