Wesco
Detailed Analysis

SECTOR: FAIL

WCC is in the Technology sector, which is one sector that this methodology avoids. Technology and financial stocks were considered too risky to invest in when this methodology was published. At that time they were not the driving force of the market as they are today. Although this methodology would avoid WCC, we will provide the rest of the analysis, as we feel times have changed.

SALES: PASS

The investor must select companies of "adequate size". This includes companies with annual sales greater than $1 billion. WCC's sales of $8,358.9 million, based on trailing 12 month sales, pass this test.

CURRENT RATIO: PASS

The current ratio must be greater than or equal to 2. Companies that meet this criterion are typically financially secure and defensive. WCC's current ratio of 2.34 passes the test.

LONG-TERM DEBT IN RELATION TO NET CURRENT ASSETS: PASS

For industrial companies, long-term debt must not exceed net current assets (current assets minus current liabilities). Companies that meet this criterion display one of the attributes of a financially secure organization. The long-term debt for WCC is $1,257.1 million, while the net current assets are $1,456.4 million. WCC passes this test.

LONG-TERM EPS GROWTH: PASS

Companies must increase their EPS by at least 30% over a ten-year period and EPS must not have been negative for any year within the last 10 years. Companies with this type of growth tend to be financially secure and have proven themselves over time. WCC's EPS growth over that period of 54.7% passes the EPS growth test.

P/E RATIO: PASS

The Price/Earnings (P/E) ratio, based on the greater of the current PE or the PE using average earnings over the last 3 fiscal years, must be "moderate", which this methodology states is not greater than 15. Stocks with moderate P/Es are more defensive by nature. WCC's P/E of 10.40 (using the 3 year PE) passes this test.

PRICE/BOOK RATIO: PASS

The Price/Book ratio must also be reasonable. That is, the Price/Book multiplied by P/E cannot be greater than 22. WCC's Price/Book ratio is 0.89, while the P/E is 10.40. WCC passes the Price/Book test.

Industrial distribution isn't a sexy business, but it has been a solid and consistent business for Wesco and one thats not likely to invite completion. Stock is trading at an attractive level given some cyclical demand.
