Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates SMUCKER (JM) CO as a Buy with a ratings score of A-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate SMUCKER (JM) CO (SJM) 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 expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
