The company has a P/E ratio of 24.5, above the average energy industry P/E ratio of 23.9 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Targa as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Targa Ratings Report.
