NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Dish Network Corp. (DISH) - Get Report are lower by 0.21% to $47.72 in afternoon trading on Thursday.

The Englewood, CO-based holding company is a direct-broadcast satellite service provider. The company provides satellite television, satellite internet, audio programming and interactive television services.

Dish Network stock is chronically cheap, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, Portfolio Manager of the Action Alerts Plus charitable trust, said in the video above.

"I see some people downgrading it and cutting their price targets. They own a huge amount of spectrum. And I don't want to sell Dish, it's too well run, too smart," Cramer said.

"My take is you buy Dish on any weakness," Cramer added.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C on the stock.

The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity.

As a counter to these strengths, the team also finds weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and generally higher debt management risk.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
