TheStreet Ratings rates Linear Technology as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in net income, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. 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 Linear Technology Ratings Report.
