TheStreet Ratings rates Electronic Arts as a hold. 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 solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall.

On the positive front, Bridgeline Digital Inc ( BLIN), icad Inc ( ICAD), CyberDefender ( CYDE), and Datalink Corporation ( DTLK) were all gainers within the computer software & services industry with Activision Blizzard Inc ( ATVI) being today's featured computer software & services industry winner.

Investors who are bullish on the computer software & services industry could consider iShares S&P NA Tech Software Idx ( IGV) while those bearish on the computer software & services industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
