KBR, Inc. operates as an engineering, construction, and services company worldwide. The company has a P/E ratio of 34.2, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

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