Factors That Augur Well
Trane Technologies continues pursuing its broader growth objectives by focusing on increasing revenue streams from parts, services, controls, used equipment and rentals. Also, TT deeply concentrates on bettering the quality of its products and services, and its operating efficiencies to achieve a sustained improvement in earnings and cash flow.
Trane Technologies consistently rewards its shareholders through dividend payments and share repurchases. In 2021, 2020 and 2019, TT had repurchased shares worth $1.10 billion, $250 million and $750.1 million, respectively. TT paid out $561.1 million, $507.3 million and $510.1 million of dividends during 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Such moves indicate Trane Technologies’ commitment to boosting its shareholder value and instilling confidence in its business.
A Key Risk
Trane Technologies’ current ratio at the end of second-quarter 2022 was pegged at 1.09, lower than the current ratio of 1.31 reported at the end of first-quarter 2022 and the prior-year quarter’s 1.58. Decreasing current ratio is not desirable as it indicates that the company may have problems meeting its short-term debt obligations.
