TheStreet Ratings team rates DAKTRONICS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate DAKTRONICS INC (DAKT) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity."
