Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates MILLENNIAL MEDIA INC as a "sell" with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate MILLENNIAL MEDIA INC (MM) 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 feeble growth in its earnings per share, deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself."
