NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of PDF Solutions (PDFS) - Get Report are lower by 27.13% to $12.85 in mid-afternoon trading on Tuesday after the company announced that two of its contracts that were expected to close in the "near future" will likely no longer be signed.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates PDF SOLUTIONS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate PDF SOLUTIONS INC (PDFS) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
