TheStreet Ratings rates Cadence Design Systems as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in net income, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the positive front, Mitek Systems ( MITK), up 11.9%, China Digital TV ( STV), up 11.3%, VanceInfo Technologies ( VIT), up 9.2%, and Unisys Corporation ( UIS), up 9.1%, were all gainers within the computer software & services industry with Microsoft Corporation ( MSFT) being today's featured computer software & services industry winner.
