ASML Holding’s Buy Rating Reaffirmed at TheStreet (ASML)
“ASML (ASML) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of B+ . The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, increase in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.”
