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•

Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:CTWS.USA, EC9.Germany,
Connecticut Water Service Inc was incorporated in 1974. The Company is a non-operating holding company, whose income is derived from the earnings of its six wholly-owned subsidiary companies. It supplied water to 121,768 customers, representing a population of approximately 400,000, in 76 municipalities throughout Connecticut and Maine. The Company operates in three business segments; Water Activities, Real Estate Transactions, and Services and Rentals. The Water Activities segment is comprised of its core regulated water activities to supply public drinking water to its customers. This segment encompasses all transactions of Regulated Companies with the exception of certain real estate transactions. The Real Estate Transactions segment involves the sale or donation for income tax benefits of its real estate holdings. The Services and Rentals segment provides contracted services to water and wastewater utilities and other clients and also leases certain of its properties to third parties through its unregulated companies in the State of Connecticut and through Maine Water in the State of Maine. The types of services provided include contract operations of water and wastewater facilities; Linebacker, its service line protection plan for public drinking water customers; and providing bulk deliveries of emergency drinking water to businesses and residences via tanker truck. The Company's water infrastructure consisted of 77 noncontiguous water systems in the States of Connecticut and Maine. Its Regulated Companies face competition from a few small privately-owned water systems operating within or adjacent to, its franchise areas and from municipal and public authority systems whose service areas in some cases overlap portions of its franchise areas. The Company's regulated water utilities is subject to environmental and water quality regulations, which are continually modified and refined to ensure the safety of the Company's water sources and, ultimately, the public's health.
