TheStreet Ratings rates NTT DoCoMo as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the negative front, AudioCodes ( AUDC), New Energy Systems Group ( NEWN), Pansoft Company ( PSOF), and Zhone Technologies Inc ( ZHNE) were all losers within the technology sector with CenturyLink Inc ( CTL) being today's technology sector Loser Spotlight stock.
