"We rate JTH HOLDING INC (TAX) a BUY.

The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations, compelling growth in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated."
