TheStreet Ratings rates Marvell Technology Group as a hold. 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. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, Dynasil Corporation of America ( DYSL), down 8.1%, IXYS Corporation ( IXYS), down 7.5%, Tower Semiconductor ( TSEM), down 6.3% and Viasystems Group ( VIAS), down 5.5% , were all laggards within the electronics industry with KLA-Tencor Corporation ( KLAC) being today's electronics industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the electronics industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Technology ( IYW) while those bearish on the electronics industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Semiconductor ( SSG).
