TheStreet Recommends

This is driven by multiple strengths, which should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks covered. 

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that were evaluated.
