Core Molding Technology

Marcelo Zinn

Incorporated in 1996, Core Molding Technologies (CMT) produces high quality fiber reinforced plastic molded products and sheet molding compound for various markets; the most significant of which is producing parts for class 8 tractors (18-wheeler trucks).

As a micro cap stock, CMT has flown under most investors’ radar. However, they possess top-flight management (even during the financial crisis they remained profitable), are rapidly growing sales and margins, have low debt, and yet trade at a paltry 5.9x trailing earnings. Additionally, a VP has recently purchased shares.

Furthermore, both the company and industry are poised to continue seeing improvement in the coming years as the economy recovers and demand for freight increases. In the short term, there are numerous figures which indicate the current quarter, and year, will be highly profitable – likely surpassing their all-time highs.

Q1 2012 results came out this morning. Sales were up 53% YoY, while income only increased 16%. The sales increase was considerable as expected. Net Income was less than stellar as a result of the continued costs associated with expanding and constructing their two facilities in Mexico and Kentucky, respectively. While we believe sales growth should continue at a solid pace this year, earnings should accelerate in the 2nd half as production in the two facilities begins to produce at normal levels.
