Google Inc., a technology company, maintains an index of Web sites and other online content for users, advertisers, and Google network members and other content providers. The company has a P/E ratio of 22.3, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Google as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full Google Ratings Report.
