The company has a P/E ratio of 12.3, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Jazz 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, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. You can view the full Jazz Ratings Report.
