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

"We rate LA-Z-BOY INC (LZB) 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 revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
