TheStreet Ratings rates Wynn Resorts as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, increase in net income and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow, a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and generally higher debt management risk.
