TheStreet Ratings rates ONEOK as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, robust revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. 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 ONEOK Ratings Report.
