Why Integrated Device Technology (IDTI) Is Up Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Integrated Device Technology  (IDTI) was gaining 13.9% to $10.50 Tuesday following an earnings report that beat analyst expectations.

TheStreet Ratings team rates INTEGRATED DEVICE TECH INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate INTEGRATED DEVICE TECH INC (IDTI) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
