Gannett Co., Inc. operates as a media and marketing solutions company in the United States and internationally. Its Publishing segment publishes 82 U.S. The company has a P/E ratio of 9.5, equal to the average media industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

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