NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Manitex International (Nasdaq:MNTX) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and attractive valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

- The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 0.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 44.5%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- Powered by its strong earnings growth of 133.33% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 55.40% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, MNTX should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- MANITEX INTERNATIONAL INC reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, MANITEX INTERNATIONAL INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.25 versus $0.19 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.67 versus $0.25).
