••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.

Kronos Worldwide Inc is a producer and marketer of value-added titanium dioxide pigments, or TiO2, a base industrial product used in different applications.

Kronos Worldwide Inc is a Delaware Corporation. The Company is a producer and marketer of value-added titanium dioxide pigments (TiO2). TiO2 is an inorganic pigment used to impart whiteness, brightness and opacity for products such as coatings, plastics, paper, fibers, food, ceramics and cosmetics. The Company owns and operates an ilmenite mine in Norway pursuant to a governmental concession with an unlimited term. It manufactures and sells iron-based chemicals, which are co-products and processed co-products of sulfate and chloride process TiO2 pigment production. These co-product chemicals are marketed through its Ecochem division, and are used mainly as treatment and conditioning agents for industrial effluents and municipal wastewater as well as in the manufacture of iron pigments, cement and agricultural products. The Company manufactures and sells titanium oxychloride and titanyl sulfate, which are side-stream products from the production of TiO2. Titanium oxychloride is used in specialty applications in the formulation of pearlescent pigments, production of electroceramic capacitors for cell phones and other electronic devices. It produces TiO2 in two crystalline forms: rutile and anatase. Rutile TiO2 is manufactured using both a chloride production process and a sulfate production process, whereas anatase TiO2 is only produced using a sulfate production process. Chloride process rutile is preferred for the majority of customer applications. From a technical standpoint, chloride process rutile has a bluer undertone and higher durability than sulfate process rutile. Although many end-use applications could use either form, chloride process rutile is the preferred form for use in coatings and plastics. The Company's customers include domestic and international paint, plastics and paper manufacturers. It competes on the basis of price, product quality, technical service and the availability of high performance pigment grades. The Company's operations are governed by various environmental laws and regulations.
