TheStreet Ratings rates SINA Corporation as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive.

On the negative front, LookSmart ( LOOK), down 13.3%, Professional Diversity Network ( IPDN), down 7.9%, ClickSoftware Technologies ( CKSW), down 6.1% and Phoenix New Media ( FENG), down 5.8% , were all laggards within the internet industry with TripAdvisor ( TRIP) 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).
