TheStreet Ratings rates NTT DoCoMo as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share. Get the full NTT DoCoMo Ratings Report now.
