TheStreet Ratings team rates CAE INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate CAE INC (CAE) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, 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 revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, increase in net income, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
