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.

Guru Investment Theses on Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd

Arnold Van Den Berg's Century Management on Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited - Mar 14, 2014

Agnico-Eagle Mines is a gold mining company with mining operations in Canada, Mexico and Finland, as well as exploration activities in Canada, Europe, Latin America and the United States. Chart 11 shows the price history of Agnico-Eagle. You can see at the bottom of 2008, around the time when gold hit a low of $712.50 per ounce, the price of Agnico-Eagle dropped to a low of $21.70 per share. However, in December 2013, Agnico-Eagle traded as low as $25.13 per share while gold traded at roughly $1,200 per ounce. In other words, even though gold is roughly 68% higher in December 2013 than it was at the bottom of 2008, Agnico-Eagle’s share price is just 19.5% higher at the end of January 2014, which leads us to believe the stock is significantly undervalued relative to gold.





Chart 12 highlights that when gold traded at $712.50 per ounce in 2008, Agnico-Eagle’s stock price traded at 1.4 times book value. Now, at the end of January 2014, with gold trading at $1,251 per ounce, Agnico-Eagle’s price-to-book is actually lower at 1.2 times. Again, we believe this illustrates an undervalued share price relative to gold.





Chart 13 shows that while gold closed at $1,251 per ounce at the end of January 2014, Agnico-Eagle’s share price sold at 2.3 times sales. This is lower than when gold traded at $712.50 per ounce. Again, we believe this ratio highlights that its share price is undervalued relative to gold.
