TheStreet Ratings rates Clorox as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. 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 Clorox Ratings Report.
