Currently there are 6 analysts that rate Weyerhaeuser a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 2 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Weyerhaeuser as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.
