SWOT Analysis For Cummins (CMI)


Cummins has increased its market share (and its moat) by focusing on helping customers meet global emission standards that are becoming more rigorous.

A pristine balance sheet allows management to continue focusing on its successful growth strategy. Cummins unique approach of partnering with locals on overseas projects has many advantages.


The company competes in a cyclical industry with large swings. Its global presence (44% of Sales) subjects the company to risks not present in its North American businesses (56%. of Sales).


Cummins has a unique model of growing globally. The company insists on a 50/50 partnership with locals instead of full ownership. This has allowed CMI to get into tenacious markets and implement policies that benefit both the company and the local market.


Continued push from the EPA toward ever stricter emissions standards could cause capital expenditures greater than expected; and worse yet, expenditures that are not recoverable through price increase.


(updated September 2017)

Cummins (CMI) is ranked #35 (out of 342) overall and #4 (out of 71) in the Industrials Sector by the Dividend Analyzer.
