TheStreet Ratings team rates VIPSHOP HOLDINGS LTD -ADR as a Hold with a ratings score of C. The team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate VIPSHOP HOLDINGS LTD -ADR (VIPS) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed -- some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's profit margins have been poor overall."
