The company operates in two segments: Carrier Services and Enterprise Services. The company has a P/E ratio of 22.8, above the average telecommunications industry P/E ratio of 16.4 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates NeuStar as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. You can view the full NeuStar Ratings Report.
