Interest coverage of 3.25x, a debt/equity ratio of 66% and a Moat Rank of 261 translate to an average Financial Strength score.

Its 4.2% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 13.3% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 11.9% speak to its impressive growth ranking.
