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.

Traded in other countries:XT1.Germany
CTS Corporation was established in 1896 and was incorporated as an Indiana corporation in February 1929. The Company designs, manufactures, assembles, and sells a broad line of electronic components and sensors and provide electronics manufacturing services primarily to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") for the automotive, communications, defense and aerospace, medical, industrial and computer markets. It operates manufacturing facilities located throughout North America, Asia and Europe and serves major markets globally. The Company has two reportable segments: Components and Sensors and Electronics Manufacturing Services ("EMS"). Components and sensors are products that perform specific electronic functions for a given product family and are intended for use in customer assemblies. Components and sensors consist principally of automotive sensors and actuators used in commercial or consumer vehicles; electronic components used in communications infrastructure and computer markets; components used in computer and other high-speed applications, switches, resistor networks, and potentiometers used to serve multiple markets; and fabricated piezoelectric materials and substrates used primarily in medical, industrial, defense and aerospace, and computer markets. EMS includes the higher level assembly of electronic and mechanical components into a finished subassembly or assembly performed under a contract manufacturing agreement with an OEM or other contract manufacturer. Additionally, for some customers, the Company provides full turnkey manufacturing and completion including design, supply chain management, logistics and repair. Products from the EMS segment are principally sold in the communications, defense and aerospace, industrial, medical, and computer OEM markets. Other smaller markets include OEM customers in consumer electronics, instruments and controls, and networking. The Company maintains a program of obtaining and protecting U.S. and non-U.S. patents and trademarks. The Company was issued nine new U.S. patents and 16 non-U.S. counterpart patents in 2011 and currently hold 184 U.S. patents and 133 non-U.S. counterpart patents.
