The company has a P/E ratio of 21.6, equal to the average energy industry P/E ratio 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, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations, notable return on equity and solid stock price performance. 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.
