"We rate LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT (LYV) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable 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.

We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
