Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB CO as a "buy" with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB CO (BMY) a BUY. This is driven by a number of 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 largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, notable return on equity, increase in stock price during the past year and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
