TheStreet Ratings team rates TITAN MACHINERY INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate TITAN MACHINERY INC (TITN) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including feeble growth in the company's earnings per share, deteriorating net income and generally higher debt management risk."
