TheStreet Ratings team rates BOB EVANS FARMS as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate BOB EVANS FARMS (BOBE) 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 strongest point has been its a solid financial position based on a variety of debt and liquidity measures that we have looked at. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income and disappointing return on equity."
