TheStreet Ratings team rates TICC CAPITAL CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B. The team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate TICC CAPITAL CORP (TICC) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
