Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates IHS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate IHS INC (IHS) a BUY. This is driven by some important positives, 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 robust revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself."
