TheStreet Ratings rates Deluxe as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, expanding profit margins and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Deluxe Ratings Report.
