TheStreet Ratings rates Kaman as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. You can view the full Kaman Ratings Report.
