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

"We rate CUMULUS MEDIA INC (CMLS) 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 revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income and poor profit margins."
