GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Lountzis Asset Management Comments on Abbvie - Mar 21, 2014

ABBVIE (ABBV), spun off from Abbott, represents their research-based proprietary pharmaceutical business and is led by its highly profitable Humira franchise. Humira makes up approximately 50% of revenues and over 70% of profits. While AbbVie is focused on growing its pipeline, the reality is Humira, the leading rheumatoid arthritis drug, will continue to drive the revenue and profit growth for AbbVie until some of the experimental drugs they are working on such as its Hepatitis C virus drug gains FDA approval and enters the market. As a result, we are reviewing our holding of AbbVie at this time given its enormous concentration on one drug. While it continues to lead in many areas and it continues to grow around the world, it remains a concern for us. AbbVie’s revenues in 2013 exceeded $18.8 billion with operating earnings of $5.7 billion.

The 5 Most-Owned Spin-Offs of Investment Gurus
Numerous financiers, including Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio), have posited that investors can beat the market by investing in spin-offs – small portions of larger companies separated to stand as their own, independent company. But is this true? This is a question that GuruFocus writer Vera Yuan pondered in her article, “Can Spin-Offs Beat the Market?” Her research concluded that 52 weeks after being spun off, all spun-off companies since 2009 collectively outperformed the market by 84.28%. For this reason, GuruFocus introduced the “Spin-Off List” screener, which tracks all companies spun off since 2013. Read more...
