TheStreet Recommends

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Buy" rating with a score of A+ on the stock.

This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks rated.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, growth in earnings per share, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance.

The team believes its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
