The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. TheStreet Ratings feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.
