The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, increase in net income, revenue growth, solid stock price performance and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full Treehouse Ratings Report.
