TheStreet Ratings rates Youku Tudou as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its 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 feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, LookSmart ( LOOK), down 11.6%, LiveDeal ( LIVE), down 8.6%, Limelight Networks ( LLNW), down 4.5%, and Synacor ( SYNC), down 4.3%, were all laggards within the internet industry with Zynga Inc Class A ( ZNGA) being today's internet industry laggard.

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).
