Either the dynamics of its sector place it in a difficult position or management's executition is to blame for its disappointing performance. Interest coverage of 1.81x, a debt/equity ratio of 183% and a Moat Rank of 314 translate to a weak Financial Strength score.

The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the top third of S&P 500 companies. Its 12.8% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 14% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 20.1% speak to its impressive growth ranking.
