TheStreet Ratings team rates ENDEAVOUR INTERNATIONAL CORP as a Sell with a ratings score of D. The team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ENDEAVOUR INTERNATIONAL CORP (END) a SELL. This is driven by multiple weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally high debt management risk, weak operating cash flow and unimpressive growth in net income."
