Currently there are 9 analysts that rate Team Health Holdings a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Team Health Holdings as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the negative front, MGT Capital Investments ( MGT), down 10.6%, Zillow ( Z), down 10.4%, PDI ( PDII), down 10.2% and 51job ( JOBS), down 8.5% , were all laggards within the diversified services industry with Visa ( V) being today's diversified services industry laggard.
