TheStreet Ratings team rates ASML HOLDING NV as a Buy with a ratings score of B+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate ASML HOLDING NV (ASML) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. 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, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook."
