Pool Corporation

POOL distributes swimming pool supplies and related products to approximately 12.0000 customers. This includes pool maintenance products such as chemicals and replacement parts and equipment like packaged pool cleaners, filters, heaters, pumps, and even lights. Its customer base includes both consumers and corporate enterprises.

The stock saw strong momentum last spring as the weather got warmer and more people built their own pools instead of traveling due to the pandemic. The stock should see a repeat this summer as traveling is expected to ramp up due to vaccinations, which will require resorts and other hotels to spend on pool supplies.

POOL has a large market share, enabling it to raise its prices amid increased demand for its products. The company has an overall grade of B, translating into a Buy rating in our POWR Ratings system. It has a Growth Grade of B, as analysts expect earnings to soar 41.3% in the current quarter. POOL also has a Quality Grade of B due to its strong fundamentals. Like LOW and ORLY, POOL has a high return on equity.

The company also has a return on invested capital of 31.9%, which also measures the efficiency.
