The company has a P/E ratio of 16.2, equal to the average diversified services industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates ABM as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full ABM Ratings Report.
