TheStreet Ratings team rates INGERSOLL-RAND PLC as a Buy with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate INGERSOLL-RAND PLC (IR) a BUY. This is driven by multiple 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 revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
