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

3. Thomson Reuters ( TRI) is one of the companies pushing the Diversified Services industry higher today. As of noon trading, Thomson Reuters is up $0.20 (0.6%) to $36.31 on light volume. Thus far, 253,429 shares of Thomson Reuters exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 830,400 shares. The stock has ranged in price between $36.09-$36.34 after having opened the day at $36.12 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $36.11.

Thomson Reuters Corporation provides intelligent information for businesses and professionals worldwide. The company sells electronic content and services to professionals, primarily on a subscription basis. Thomson Reuters has a market cap of $29.2 billion and is part of the services sector. Shares are down 4.5% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 5 analysts who rate Thomson Reuters a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 7 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Thomson Reuters as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and growth in earnings per share. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow.
