EchoStar Corporation engages in the design, development, and distribution of digital set-top boxes and related products for direct-to-home satellite service providers. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.7, equal to the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 21.5. TheStreet Ratings rates EchoStar as a buy. 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, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full EchoStar Ratings Report.
