TheStreet Ratings team rates CHINACACHE INTL HLDGS -ADR as a "hold" with a ratings score of C-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate CHINACACHE INTL HLDGS -ADR (CCIH) 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, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity."
