TheStreet Ratings team rates WILEY (JOHN) & SONS as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate WILEY (JOHN) & SONS (JW.A) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, 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 expanding profit margins, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
