TheStreet Ratings rates Colgate-Palmolive as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share, expanding profit margins and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full
