TheStreet Ratings rates Advanced Battery as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Magnetek ( MAG), CVD Equipment Corporation ( CVV), Manitowoc Co Inc ( MTW), and China Ming Yang Wind Power Group ( MY) were all gainers within the industrial industry with General Electric ( GE) being today's featured industrial industry winner.
