TheStreet Ratings team rates RUCKUS WIRELESS INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
We rate RUCKUS WIRELESS INC (RKUS) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our 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, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive.
