Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C- on the stock.
The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and impressive record of earnings per share growth.
But the team also finds weaknesses including poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
