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 robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.
