TheStreet Ratings rates Linn Energy as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, expanding profit margins, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Linn Energy Ratings Report.
