Cepheid, a molecular diagnostics company, develops, manufactures, and markets integrated systems for testing in the clinical market, as well as for application in legacy biothreat, industrial, and partner markets. The company has a P/E ratio of 127, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 23.2.

TheStreet Ratings rates Cepheid as a hold. 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 and solid stock price performance. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing. You can view the full
