Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

Switzerland-based Schindler is the second-largest supplier of elevators and escalators globally. Schindler generates revenue in three ways: selling new elevators and escalators, overhauling or modernizing old equipment, and servicing existing equipment. Most of the company's profit comes from the latter activity, where contracts are rolled over annually with built-in price increases. Ninety percent of its business is in elevators, which are more numerous globally than escalators.
