Moody's Corporation, through its subsidiaries, provides credit ratings, research, and analysis covering fixed-income securities, other debt instruments, and the entities that issue such instruments in the global capital markets. The company has a P/E ratio of 14, above the average financial services industry P/E ratio of 13.8 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 22.6.

TheStreet Ratings rates Moody's as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive. You can view the full
