TheStreet Ratings rates Tenaris 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, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, China Gerui Advanced Materials Group ( CHOP), down 15.1%, Minco Gold Corporation ( MGH), down 10.3%, Cardero Resources Corporation ( CDY), down 8.5% and Golden Star Resources ( GSS), down 7.9% , were all laggards within the metals & mining industry with Newmont Mining Corporation ( NEM) being today's metals & mining industry laggard.
