TheStreet Ratings rates Summer Infant as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, American Apparel Inc ( APP), SodaStream International ( SODA), China Xiniya Fashion ( XNY), and True Religion Apparel Inc ( TRLG) were all gainers within the consumer non-durables industry with Coach Inc ( COH) being today's featured consumer non-durables industry winner.
