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.

Business Description

Industry: Metals & Mining » Copper
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:J7L.Germany
Lihua International, Inc is a Delaware Corporation. The Company develops, designs, manufactures, markets and distributes low cost, high quality refined copper products including copper anode, copper rod, pure superfine copper wire, and copper-clad aluminum superfine wire (CCA), which is an alternative to pure superfine copper wire. It also uses recycled scrap copper as a raw material to produce refined copper products including copper anode and copper rod. Copper anode is the raw material for copper cathode, which is the fundamental building block for most pure copper products. It currently uses copper rod produced internally for the production of pure copper superfine wire. Primarily because of its high electrical conductivity, pure copper wire is used in many components in a wide variety of motorized and electrical appliances such as dishwashers, microwaves and automobiles. In most instances, its CCA wire and refined copper rod and wire products are an excellent, less costly substitute for pure copper cable and wire products. In the first quarter of 2009, it began production of copper rod from recycled scrap copper. The copper rod it produces meets the national purity standard for pure copper cable and wire. In August of 2010, it began production and sales of copper anode, another refined copper product produced from recycled scrap copper, and increased its refined copper smelting capacity to 50,000 tons per annum. The Company's copper recycling pre-treatment phase utilizes its proprietary cleaning technology with respect to which it has applied for an invention patent. The process involves manually or mechanically sorting, stripping, shredding and magnetically separating the scrap copper. The scrap copper is then compacted and pre-treated with chemicals. Following the pre-treatment phase, the metal is smelted and fire refined in a furnace. The furnace refining process commences with loading the furnace with the pre-treated metal, smelting it, and then refining and reducing it. The Company's fine and superfine wire drawing process utilizes either its recycled copper rod or CCA and involves drawing the wire to the desired final diameter. Whether using recycled copper rod or CCA, the drawing process entails multiple steps, including heat treating, annealing, baking, cooling, quenching and spooling, as may be necessary to achieve the desired wire diameter and other customer specifications. The Company's products consist of high purity copper products refined from scrap and bi-metallic copper products. An anode is an electrode through which electric current flows into a polarized electrical device. Copper anode is the raw material for the production of copper cathode, which is the fundamental building block of most of the pure copper products. The copper anode it produces is in a very heavy, dull looking copper pallet form. In March 2009, it launched the manufacturing of copper rod from its newly acquired continuous production syst

Trading as a net-net. If the company were liquidated tomorrow, you'd be paying about 50 cents on the dollar. That's to say nothing of the fact that the company remains profitable. Last quarter's revenues affected by anticipated production interruptions, which should recover in the future. I suspect that like most Chinese stocks, this is being ignored for being, well, Chinese.

I agree with Lencse. This is a stock with an extremly low valuation (based on p/b, p/e etc). Such a valuation would make sense for a highly distressed company, but Lihua is profitable and has a stong balance sheet (high cash and very low debts) and a strong business model. It is hard to understand market prices...

Profitble right from the beggining, having slight problems and the market does not even notices that they exist. Their business is not fancy, not cancer treatment or anything like. Rock solid old fashioned business. Boring. Just the ones an investor can relly on.
