LSB Industries, Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages in the manufacture and sale of geothermal and water source heat pumps, air handling products, and chemical products. The company operates in two segments, Climate Control and Chemical. The company has a P/E ratio of 56.7, below the average consumer durables industry P/E ratio of 59.6 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 23.4.

TheStreet Ratings rates LSB as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, poor profit margins and weak operating cash flow. You can view the full
