Our approach concludes the company's business moat is average. Our analysis of its moat reveals neither a durable moat or enduring competitive advantages. Interest coverage of 0x, a debt/equity ratio of 68% and a Moat Rank of 185 translate to an average Financial Strength score.

Its 33.6% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 15.8% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 9.9% speak to its impressive growth ranking.
