“Rackspace Hosting (RAX) 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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.”
