The company has a P/E ratio of 22, equal to the average electronics industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Roper 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, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results. You can view the full Roper Ratings Report.
