NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Allied Healthcare Products (Nasdaq: AHPI) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from sell to hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, 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 company's profit margins have been poor overall.
