••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Lindsay Corp ("Lindsay") formerly known as Lindsay Manufacturing Company was incorporated in Delaware. The Company manufactures automated agricultural irrigation systems and sells these products in both U.S. and international markets. Through the acquisition of Watertronics in January of 2008, the Company has enhanced its position in water pumping station controls with further opportunities for integration with irrigation control systems. The Company is a designer and manufacturer of self-propelled center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems which are used in the agricultural industry to increase or stabilize crop production while conserving water, energy and labor. The Company also manufactures and markets different infrastructure products, including moveable barriers for traffic lane management, crash cushions, preformed reflective pavement tapes and other road safety devices. In addition, its infrastructure segment produces large diameter steel tubing and railroad signaling structures, and provides outsourced manufacturing and production services for other companies. The Company's domestic irrigation sales and production facilities are located in Nebraska and Wisconsin. Its international irrigation sales and production facilities are located in France, Brazil, South Africa and China. It also owns a retail irrigation dealership with three separate retail locations based in the eastern Washington state region. Lindsay's main infrastructure locations include Rio Vista, California, Omaha, Nebraska and Milan, Italy. These locations manufacture and market moveable and specialty barriers, crash cushions and road marking and safety equipment for use on roadways. The Company markets its center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems domestically and internationally under its Zimmatic brand. It also manufactures and distributes mini-pivots and hose reel travelers, pivot monitoring and control systems, which include remote telemetry and a web or personal computer hosted data acquisition and monitoring application. The Company's Quickchange Moveable Barrier (tm) system is composed of three parts: 1) T-shaped concrete barriers that are connected to form a continuous wall, 2) a Barrier Transfer Machine (tm) capable of moving the barrier laterally across the pavement, and 3) the variable length barriers necessary for accommodating curves. The Company's Diversified Manufacturing and Tubing business unit manufactures and markets large diameter steel tubing and railroad signaling structures, and provides outsourced manufacturing and production services for other companies. Raw materials used by the Company include coil steel, angle steel, plate steel, zinc, tires, gearboxes, concrete, rebar, fasteners, and electrical and hydraulic components.Lindsay's Zimmatic, Greenfield, GrowSmart, Quickchange Moveable Barrier, ABSORB 350, TAU, Universal TAU-II, TAU-B_NR, X-Tension, CableGuard, TESI, SAB, ArmourGuard, PaveGuard, DR46, U-MAD and other t
