Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates INDIA GLOBALIZATION CAPITAL as a "sell" with a ratings score of D-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate INDIA GLOBALIZATION CAPITAL (IGC) a SELL. This is driven by a few notable 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 unimpressive growth in net income, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share."
