TheStreet Recommends

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Buy" rating with a score of B on the stock.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its reasonable valuation levels and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.
