Haven't checked on the financials of this company and I'm not even going to bother. Desalination will be an important procedure going forward and I'm willing to guess that this stock will benefit from that.

Analyst ratings have remained constant for a year. Will continue to perform but won't beat the market.

Solid business model, but correctly priced

Aside from the fact that CWCO is a dividend-paying water utility with a steady income stream, the company also provides supplies, plant management and construction services for desalination systems. In a world with a finite supply of water and a steadily growing population, desalination should be an attractive way for many coastal nations to expand their fresh water supplies, which provides CWCO with avenues for future growth not typically seen in a utility.

Extending intent to hold CWCO for 2+ years. Market compound annual growth rate has been 4.35% vs. 14.54% for S&P over the period while average annual return on invested capital has been 4.12%. Overall we find firm performance poor versus the S&P 500.
Even though we have failed to beat the performance index over a five-year period, we like the niche market Consolidated Water is focused. We are cautiously optimistic about the recent acquisition of Aerex Industries, Inc. We believe the 51% stake in Aerex may prove productive by further diversifying the business within their market while adding to top line revenue.
We see the footprint in the USA as a positive move for two reasons. (1) We believe more municipalities will consider reverse osmosis water desalination in future years. The Aerex acquisition augments the build/own/operate model. (2) Municipalities consistently need to perform operations and maintenance of equipment, and invest in new capital improvements. Aerex as an original equipment manufacturer and service provider can grow the customer base, especially when combined with the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the parent company, Consolidated.
