TheStreet Ratings rates TE Connectivity as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, CEVA ( CEVA), down 12.5%, Enphase Energy ( ENPH), down 11.6%, Revolution Lighting Technologies ( RVLT), down 8.1% and API Technologies ( ATNY), down 7.6% , were all laggards within the electronics industry with Broadcom Corporation ( BRCM) being today's electronics industry laggard.
