Toyota Motor Corporation engages in the design, manufacture, assembly, and sale of passenger cars, minivans, and commercial vehicles and related parts primarily in Japan, North America, Europe, and Asia. The company has a P/E ratio of 48.9, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

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