TheStreet Ratings team rates REAL GOODS SOLAR INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C-. The team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate REAL GOODS SOLAR INC (RGSE) 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 revenue growth, compelling growth in net income and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow."
