Core Laboratories N.V. provides reservoir description, production enhancement, and reservoir management services to the oil and gas industry worldwide.

TheStreet Ratings rates Core Laboratories N.V as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.
