TheStreet Ratings team rates LEXMARK INTL INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate LEXMARK INTL INC (LXK) a BUY. This is driven by several positive factors, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook."
