TheStreet Ratings rates Republic Services as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its reasonable valuation levels, increase in stock price during the past year, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity.
