 The Warren Buffett Way's analysis of SLR
1. Has the company performed well consistently?     
HOW SLR SCORES:
SLR's return on equity has dipped below the Printed Circuit Boards industry's average ROE over the last five years.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
You may want to examine SLR's management and their strategy.
  Grade = FAIL
2. Has the company avoided excess debt?     
HOW SLR SCORES:
SLR's long-term debt/shareholder's equity ratio has risen above the Printed Circuit Boards industry's average within the last five years.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Buffett believes that a business should achieve good returns on equity while employing little or no debt. You should be sure that SLR isn't using leverage to boost returns. Review management's discussion of the company's financial condition in SEC filings to see how executives plan to use debt to grow the company.
  Grade = FAIL
3. Can managers convert sales to profits?     
HOW SLR SCORES:
SLR's net profit margins have fallen below the Printed Circuit Boards industry's average over the last five years.
WHAT THIS MEANS:
Buffett has observed that companies with high-cost operations typically find ways to sustain or add to their costs. Every dollar spent unwisely deprives the owners of the business of a dollar of profit. Recent news articles on SLR may tell you if rising costs or other problems are putting pressure on margins.
  Grade = FAIL
4. Are managers handling shareholders' money rationally?     
HOW SLR SCORES:
Management has not reduced the number of SLR's common shares outstanding over the last five years. In addition, SLR does not pay dividends.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
SLR may be reinvesting cash it needs in order to grow its business. This only makes sense if the company can invest in projects that earn returns above the cost of capital.
  Grade = FAIL
5. Has management actually increased shareholder value?     
HOW SLR SCORES:
Over the last 10 years, investors have created $-0.37 in market value for every dollar in retained earnings.
WHAT THIS MEANS:
If a business has employed retained earnings unproductively over the years, the market will eventually catch up and will set a low price on the business.
  Grade = FAIL
6. Has the company consistently increased owner earnings?     
WHAT'S MISSING?
In order to calculate the growth in owner earnings, the Warren Buffett Way strategy requires positive earnings in each of the last five years. SLR has had zero or negative earnings in one or more of the last five years.
  Grade = FAIL
7. Is the stock selling at a 25% discount to intrinsic value?     
WHAT'S MISSING?
Both historical earnings and estimated future earnings are either negative or unavailable for SLR. As a result, a positive intrinsic value cannot be calculated since SLR's future cash flow is uncertain.
  Grade = FAIL
