TheStreet Ratings rates Depomed as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive. You can view the full Depomed Ratings Report.
