TheStreet Ratings team rates AVIAT NETWORKS INC as a Sell with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate AVIAT NETWORKS INC (AVNW) a SELL. This is driven by some concerns, 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 deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself."
