TheStreet Ratings rates SanDisk as a buy. 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, attractive valuation levels, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, Applied Energetics Inc ( AERG), Mattson Technology ( MTSN), Silicon Image Incorporated ( SIMG), and Meade Instruments Corporation ( MEAD) were all losers within the electronics industry with Lam Research Corporation ( LRCX) being today's electronics industry Loser Spotlight stock.
