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: Building Materials » Building Materials
Compare:HCMLY, AHCHY, LFRGY, SHW, MLM » details
Smith-Midland Corporation was incorporated in Delaware on August 2, 1994. The Company invents, develops, manufactures, markets, leases, licenses, sells, and installs precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, highway, utilities and farming industries through its five wholly-owned subsidiaries. The Company's precast and barrier rental customers are primarily general contractors and federal, state, and local transportation authorities located in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeastern, Midwestern and Southeastern regions of the United States. The Company's operating strategy has involved producing innovative and proprietary products, including Slenderwall, a patented, lightweight, energy efficient concrete and steel exterior wall panel for use in building construction; J-J Hooks Highway Safety Barrier, a patented, positive-connected highway safety barrier; SoftSound, a proprietary sound absorptive finish used on the face of sound barriers to absorb some of the traffic noise; Sierra Wall, a sound barrier primarily for roadside use; Easi-Set and Easi-Span transportable concrete buildings with patented features; and Beach Prisms erosion mitigating modules. In addition, the Company's precast subsidiaries produce custom order precast concrete products with various architectural surfaces, as well as generic highway sound barriers, utility vaults and farm products such as cattleguards and water and feed troughs. All of the raw materials necessary for the manufacture of the Company's products are available from multiple sources. The Company presently grants licenses, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Easi-Set Industries, for the manufacturing and distribution rights of certain proprietary products, such as the J-J Hooks Barrier, Easi-Set and Easi-Span Precast Buildings, Slenderwall, Softsound and Beach Prisms as well as certain non-proprietary products, such as the Company's cattleguards, and water and feed troughs. The Company has entered into 50 licensing agreements in the United States, eight in Canada and one each in Belgium, New Zealand, Mexico and Australia, for a total of 62 licensees worldwide. The Company's operations are subject to extensive and stringent governmental regulations including regulations related to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and environmental protection.
