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: Industrial Products » Metal Fabrication
Compare:RS, STBWY, AZZ, MLI, WOR » details
Traded in other countries:OYS.Germany
Olympic Steel is incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio. The Company is a metals service center that operates in two reportable segments: flat products and tubular and pipe products. It provides metal processing and distribution services for a wide range of customers. The main focus of its flat products segment is on the direct sale and distribution of large volumes of processed carbon, coated, aluminum and stainless flat-rolled sheet, coil and plate products. The Company acts as an intermediary between metal producers and manufacturers that require processed metal for their operations. The Company serves customers in most carbon steel consuming industries, including manufacturers and fabricators of transportation and material handling equipment, construction and farm machinery, storage tanks, environmental and energy generation equipment, automobiles, food service and electrical equipment, military vehicles and equipment, as well as general and plate fabricators and metals service centers. The Company distributes its products primarily through a direct sales force. The flat products segment has 23 strategically-located processing and distribution facilities in the United States and one in Monterrey, Mexico. The tubular and pipe products segment consists of the newly acquired CTI business. Through its tubular and pipe products segment, the Company distributes metal tubing, pipe, bar, valve and fittings and fabricate pressure parts supplied to various industrial markets. The Company concentrates on developing supply relationships with high-quality metal producers, using a coordinated effort to be the customer of choice for business critical suppliers. The Company competes with other regional and national metals service centers, single location service centers and, to a certain degree, metal producers and intermediate metal processors on a regional basis. It has different competitors for each of its products and within each region. The Company's operations are governed by many laws and regulations, including those relating to workplace safety and worker health, principally the Occupational Safety and Health Act and regulations thereunder. Its facilities are subject to certain federal, state and local requirements relating to the protection of the environment.
