TheStreet Ratings rates Sap AG ADR as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and increase in net income. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the positive front, Recon Technology ( RCON), up 15.2%, Innovative Solutions & Support ( ISSC), up 14.7%, Merge Healthcare ( MRGE), up 12.4%, and e-Future Information Technology ( EFUT), up 10.3%, were all gainers within the computer software & services industry with Activision Blizzard ( ATVI) being today's featured computer software & services industry winner.
