Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates B&G FOODS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate B&G FOODS INC (BGS) 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 robust revenue growth and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
