The Timken Company develops, manufactures, markets, and sells anti-friction bearings and assemblies, alloy steels, and mechanical power transmission systems. It operates through four segments: Mobile Industries, Process Industries, Aerospace and Defense, and Steel. The company has a P/E ratio of 7.6, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. TheStreet Ratings rates Timken 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, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full Timken Ratings Report.
