TheStreet Ratings team rates AVON PRODUCTS as a Sell with a ratings score of D+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate AVON PRODUCTS (AVP) a SELL. This is driven by some concerns, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, generally high debt management risk, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself."
