Currently there are 9 analysts who rate Atmel a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 2 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Atmel as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income and weak operating cash flow.
