Halliburton Rating Reiterated by TheStreet (HAL)
“Halliburton Company (HAL) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B . 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, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.”
