B/E Aerospace, Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, and services cabin interior products for commercial aircraft and business jets worldwide. It operates in three segments: Commercial Aircraft, Consumables Management, and Business Jet. The company has a P/E ratio of 25.7, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates B/E 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, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full B/E Ratings Report.
