The company has a P/E ratio of 3.3, equal to the average drugs industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates China 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, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself. You can view the full China Ratings Report.
