TheStreet Ratings rates Marvell Technology Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels 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, RF Micro Devices ( RFMD), down 7.5%, Applied Energetics ( AERG), down 6.8%, Hoku ( HOKU), down 6.7%, and InvenSense ( INVN), down 5.6%, were all losers within the electronics industry with Altera ( ALTR) being today's electronics industry loser.
