TheStreet Ratings rates SanDisk 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, reasonable valuation levels and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.

On the positive front, ClearSign Combustion ( CLIR), up 13.1%, Orion Energy Systems ( OESX), up 9.9%, Enphase Energy ( ENPH), up 7.8%, and LDK Solar Company ( LDK), up 7.4%, were all gainers within the electronics industry with LSI Corporation ( LSI) being today's featured electronics industry winner.
