Shares are up 28.9% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates SINA as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

On the positive front, Ultimate Software Group Inc ( ULTI), Banks.com Inc ( BNX), LiveDeal Inc ( LIVE), and Local.com Corporation ( LOCM) were all gainers within the internet industry with Google Inc ( GOOG) being today's featured internet industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the internet industry could consider First Trust Dow Jones Internet Idx ( FDN) while those bearish on the internet industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
