GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Compare:RS, STBWY, AZZ, MLI, WOR » details
Traded in other countries:XTY.Germany
Carpenter Technology Corporation was incorporated in 1904. The Company is engaged in the manufacturing, fabrication and distribution of specialty metals The Company is operates in three business segments namely specialty alloys operations, Latrobe, and performance engineered products. It develops, manufactures and distributes cast/wrought and powder metal stainless steels and special alloys including high temperature (iron-nickel-cobalt base), stainless, superior corrosion resistant, controlled expansion alloys, ultra high strength and implantable alloys, tool and die steels and other specialty metals, as well as cast/wrought titanium alloys. It provides material solutions to the changing needs of the aerospace and defense, energy, transportation, medical, industrial and consumer industries. The SAO segment is comprised of the Company's major premium alloy and stainless steel manufacturing operations. This includes operations performed at mills mainly in Reading, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area, South Carolina, and the new premium products manufacturing facility being built in Limestone County, Alabama. The Latrobe segment is comprised of the manufacturing and distribution operations of the Latrobe business acquired effective February 29, 2012. The Latrobe segment provides management with the focus and visibility into the business performance of these newly acquired operations. The PEP segment is comprised of the Company's differentiated operations. This includes the Dynamet titanium business, the Carpenter Powder Products business, and the Amega West business. The businesses in the PEP segment will be managed with an entrepreneurial structure to promote speed and flexibility and drive overall revenue and profit growth. Its special alloys are used in critical components such as rings, discs and fasteners and include heat resistant alloys that range from slight modifications of stainless steels to complex nickel and cobalt base alloys as well as alloys for electronic, magnetic and electrical applications with controlled thermal expansion characteristics, or high electrical resistivity or special magnetic characteristics. Its stainless products include various corrosion resistant alloys including conventional stainless steels and many proprietary grades for special applications. Its titanium products include corrosion resistant, specialized metal with a combination of high strength and low density. It is used commonly in aircraft fasteners, medical devices, sporting equipment and chemical and petroleum processing. Its powder metals include spherical gas atomized powders produced via air, vacuum, or pressurized melting with Argon or Nitrogen Atomization in fine, medium and coarse powder distributions. Its alloy and tools steels are sold across a range of industries in long forms as well as rounds, plates and sheets. Its distribution sales represent sales of corrosion resistant steels, tool steels and powder metals for various
