2 segments: New parts (generally 50% of sales, 25% of EBIT). Around 13-15 months of typical turnaround. Around 25% market share, says 10K. Aftermarket (generally 50% of sales, 75% of EBIT). Aftermarket sales are tied to installed base, so less cycle sensitive. 3-4 months turnaround. Dresser-Rand Group has a market cap of $4.5 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector.

TheStreet Ratings rates Dresser-Rand Group as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, revenue growth, notable return on equity and compelling growth in net income. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself. Get the full Dresser-Rand Group Ratings Report now.
