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 and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, weak operating cash flow and deteriorating net income.

On the negative front, Extreme Networks ( EXTR), down 15.9%, 3D Systems Corporation ( DDD), down 15.4%, Crossroads Systems ( CRDS), down 10.3% and voxeljet ( VJET), down 6.3% , were all laggards within the computer hardware industry with NetApp ( NTAP) being today's computer hardware industry laggard.
