TheStreet Ratings rates Fidelity National Information Services as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, InterCloud Systems ( ICLD), down 10.4%, Brink's ( BCO), down 5.5%, Trinet Group ( TNET), down 5.1% and Financial Engines ( FNGN), down 4.5% , were all laggards within the diversified services industry with MasterCard ( MA) being today's diversified services industry laggard.
