Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates OI SA as a "sell" with a ratings score of D+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate OI SA (OIBR) a SELL. This is driven by several weaknesses, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its feeble growth in its earnings per share, unimpressive growth in net income, generally high debt management risk, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow."
