TheStreet Ratings team rates ZUMIEZ INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ZUMIEZ INC (ZUMZ) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable 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, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
