TheStreet Ratings rates Siemens as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Deltathree ( DDDC), down 18.0%, Linktone ( LTON), down 12.9%, eOn Communications Corporation ( EONC), down 4.1% and Gogo ( GOGO), down 4.0%.
