TST Recommends

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, reasonable valuation levels and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and disappointing return on equity.
