NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- IHS (NYSE: IHS) hit a new 52-week high Thursday as it is currently trading at $115.76, above its previous 52-week high of $115.33 with 2,333 shares traded as of 9:38 a.m. ET. Average volume has been 395,400 shares over the past 30 days.

IHS Inc. provides critical information and insight products and services. The company has a P/E ratio of 57.5, above the average computer software & services industry P/E ratio of 56.9 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates IHS as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full IHS Ratings Report.
