Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates ADEPT TECHNOLOGY INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ADEPT TECHNOLOGY INC (ADEP) 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, solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing."
