SuccessFactors Inc has a market cap of $2 billion and is part of the technology sector. Shares are down 15.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.

TheStreet Ratings rates SuccessFactors 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 good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that net income has been generally deteriorating over time.
