BGC Partners, Inc. operates as a financial intermediary to the financial markets specializing in the brokering of various financial products. The company has a P/E ratio of 38.5, equal to the average financial services industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 22.6.

TheStreet Ratings rates BGC as a buy. 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, increase in net income, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full
