Now let's look at TheStreet Ratings' take on some of these stocks.

TheStreet Ratings team rates JDS UNIPHASE CORP as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate JDS UNIPHASE CORP (JDSU) 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, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year."
