TheStreet Ratings rates Omnicare as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, increase in stock price during the past year and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins. You can view the full Omnicare Ratings Report.
