Nordstrom, Inc., a fashion specialty retailer, offers apparel, shoes, cosmetics, and accessories for women, men, and children in the United States. It offers a selection of brand name and private label merchandise. The company has a P/E ratio of 17.2, above the average retail industry P/E ratio of 16.1 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Nordstrom as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins, growth in earnings per share and increase in net income. 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 Nordstrom Ratings Report.
