Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Marvell Technology Group a buy, 3 analysts rate it a sell, and 7 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Marvell Technology Group as a hold. 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 solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall.

On the positive front, Pulse Electronics ( PULS), up 51.4%, Dynasil Corporation of America ( DYSL), up 44.9%, Triquint Semiconductor ( TQNT), up 26.1% and RF Micro Devices ( RFMD), up 21.0% , were all gainers within the electronics industry with Corning ( GLW) being today's featured electronics industry leader.

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).
