TheStreet Ratings team rates VOYA FINANCIAL INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate VOYA FINANCIAL INC (VOYA) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed -- some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins."
