TheStreet Ratings rates Verigy as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive. You can view the full Verigy Ratings Report.
