FMC Technologies, Inc. provides technology solutions for the energy industry worldwide. It operates in three segments: Subsea Technologies, Surface Technologies, and Energy Infrastructure. The company has a P/E ratio of 28.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates FMC as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, 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 lackluster performance in the stock itself. You can view the full FMC Ratings Report.
