TheStreet Ratings rates Chesapeake as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, growth in earnings per share 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 Chesapeake Ratings Report.
