TheStreet Ratings team rates WD-40 CO as a Buy with a ratings score of A-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate WD-40 CO (WDFC) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, growth in earnings per share, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
