GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

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:4Q2.Germany,
Quanex Building Products Corp was incorporated in Delaware on December 12, 2007 as Quanex Building Products Corporation. The Company is engaged in the production of aluminum flat-rolled products, flexible insulating glass spacer systems, extruded vinyl profiles, thin film solar panel sealants, and precision-formed metal and wood products which primarily serve the North American building products markets. The Company uses low-cost production processes, and engineering and metallurgical expertise to provide customers with specialized products for specific applications. The Company's businesses are managed on a decentralized basis and operate in two reportable business segments: Engineered Products and Aluminum Sheet Products. The Engineered Products segment is comprised of four fabricated metal components operations, two facilities producing wood fenestration components, one facility producing engineered wood flooring, four polyvinyl chloride extrusion facilities, and four flexible IG spacer facilities. The segment's operations produce window and door components for Original Equipment Manufacturers that mainly serve the residential construction, commercial construction, and remodeling markets. Products include insulating glass spacer systems, window and patio door screens, aluminum cladding and other roll formed metal window components, door components such as thresholds and astragals, residential exterior products, patio doors, window profiles and custom window grilles, trim and architectural moldings in a variety of woods, thin film solar panel sealants, and engineered wood flooring. The Aluminum Sheet Products segment is comprised of an aluminum mini-mill operation and three stand-alone aluminum sheet cold finishing operations. Aluminum sheet finishing capabilities include reducing reroll coil to specific gauge, annealing, slitting and custom coating. Customer end-use applications of the finished sheet include residential windows and screens, patio doors, exterior home trim, fascias, roof edgings, soffits, downspouts and gutters. Some of the main competitors of the Engineered Products business include Royal Group, Veka, Deceuninck, GED Integrated Solutions, Allmetal, Vision Industries, Aluminite, and Ritescreen. The Aluminum Sheet Products business competes with small to large aluminum sheet manufacturers such as Aleris, Jupiter, Alcoa, and JW Aluminum. Engineered Products segment sales are primarily to window and door OEMs through a direct sales force, whereas Aluminum Sheet Products segment sales are to OEM and distribution customers through both direct and indirect sales representatives. The Company has 20 manufacturing facilities in 9 states in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. The Company is subject to extensive federal, state and local laws and regulations concerning the discharge of materials into the environment and the remediation of chemical contamination.
