Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate DECKERS OUTDOOR CORP (DECK) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, 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 revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, solid stock price performance and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.
Deckers Outdoor said it expecting revenue for the full fiscal year to grow 14%, compared to its previous guidance of 13%.
