TheStreet Ratings rates Golfsmith International as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and generally poor debt management.

On the negative front, Zale Corporation ( ZLC), Big five Sporting Goods Corporation ( BGFV), West Marine Inc ( WMAR), and Barnes & Noble Inc ( BKS) were all losers within the specialty retail industry with KAR Auction Services Inc ( KAR) being today's specialty retail industry Loser Spotlight stock.
