HSN, Inc., an interactive multi-channel retailer, provides retail experiences through various platforms, including television, online, mobile, catalogs, and retail and outlet stores. It markets and sells a range of third party and private label merchandise primarily in the United States. HSN has a market cap of $3.0 billion and is part of the services sector. Shares are up 2.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are 3 analysts that rate HSN a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 3 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates HSN as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. Get the full HSN Ratings Report now.
