TheStreet Ratings team rates MGIC INVESTMENT CORP/WI as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate MGIC INVESTMENT CORP/WI (MTG) 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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year."
