The company has a P/E ratio of 24.1, below the average chemicals industry P/E ratio of 25.8 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 23.4. TheStreet Ratings rates Rockwood as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and reasonable valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Rockwood Ratings Report.
