TheStreet Ratings team rates EXELON CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate EXELON CORP (EXC) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, 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 revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
