NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- ASML (Nasdaq: ASML) hit a new 52-week high Tuesday as it is currently trading at $49.10, above its previous 52-week high of $49.09 with 943,193 shares traded as of 11:40 a.m. ET. Average volume has been 2.4 million shares over the past 30 days.

ASML Holding N.V., through its subsidiaries, engages in designing, manufacturing, marketing, and servicing semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits. The company has a P/E ratio of 64.6, above the average electronics industry P/E ratio of 9.8 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates ASML as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full ASML Ratings Report.
