Shengkai Innovations, Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages in designing, manufacturing, and distributing ceramic valves and components for industrial use in the People's Republic of China.

TheStreet Ratings rates Shengkai Innovations as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been a generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.
