TheStreet Ratings team rates MACQUARIE INFRASTRUCT CO LLC as a Buy with a ratings score of A-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate MACQUARIE INFRASTRUCT CO LLC (MIC) 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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results."
