Currently there are 11 analysts that rate Triumph Group a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Triumph Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, Frontline ( FRO), up 5.0%, Astrotech Corporation ( ASTC), up 2.4%, Taser International ( TASR), up 2.1% and Astronics Corporation ( ATRO), up 2.0%.
