TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Circor International as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • CIR's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.24 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.48, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 139.87% to $7.65 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, CIRCOR INTL INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -24.55%.
  • Regardless of the drop in revenue, the company managed to outperform against the industry average of 14.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 9.1%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
  • Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. Compared to other companies in the Machinery industry and the overall market, CIRCOR INTL INC's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • The gross profit margin for CIRCOR INTL INC is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 33.46%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 2.56% trails that of the industry average.
