TheStreet Ratings rates Maximus as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, good cash flow from operations and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins. You can view the full Maximus Ratings Report.
