Rosetta Resources Inc., an independent oil and gas company, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil and gas properties in the United States. The company has a P/E ratio of 106.1, equal to the average energy industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 16.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Rosetta as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. 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 Rosetta Ratings Report.
