- CIRCOR INTL INC has improved earnings per share by 5.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, CIRCOR INTL INC increased its bottom line by earning $0.71 versus $0.33 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.07 versus $0.71).
- CIR's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.27 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels.
