Electronic Arts Inc. develops, markets, publishes, and distributes game software content and services for video game consoles, personal computers, mobile phones, tablets and electronic readers, and the Internet. The company has a P/E ratio of 747.5, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Electronic Arts as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its good cash flow from operations, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's net income has been quite unimpressive. You can view the full Electronic Arts Ratings Report.
