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.

TheStreet Ratings Group would like to highlight 3 stocks that pushed the sector lower today:

Nevada Gold & Casinos ( UWN) is one of the companies that pushed the Services sector lower today. Nevada Gold & Casinos was down $0.03 (2.2%) to $1.20 on light volume.

TheStreet Ratings rates Nevada Gold & Casinos as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income and weak operating cash flow.

Highlights from TheStreet Ratings analysis on UWN go as follows:

  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.46, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. To add to this, UWN has a quick ratio of 1.59, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • 37.29% is the gross profit margin for NEVADA GOLD & CASINOS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of UWN's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, UWN's net profit margin of -1.37% significantly underperformed when compared to the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to $0.41 million or 69.13% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow NEVADA GOLD & CASINOS INC is still fairing well by exceeding its industry average cash flow growth rate of -80.10%.
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Hotels, Restaurants & Leisure industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 186.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $0.24 million to -$0.20 million.
