TheStreet Ratings rates DPL as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, increase in stock price during the past year and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full
