TheStreet Ratings team rates TIVO INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate TIVO INC (TIVO) 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 robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels and compelling growth in net income. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook."
