TheStreet Ratings rates First Potomac as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, growth in earnings per share and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
