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.

Alliance Holdings GP, L.P. is a Delaware limited partnership, which was formed to own and control Alliance Resource Management GP, LLC, the managing general partner of Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (ARLP). The ARLP Partnership is a diversified producer and marketer of coal to major U.S. utilities and industrial users. ARLP conducts substantially all of its business through its wholly-owned subsidiary, the Intermediate Partnership. The Company has four reportable segments: the Illinois Basin, Central Appalachia, Northern Appalachia and Other and Corporate. The first three segments correspond to the three major coal producing regions in the eastern U.S. Coal quality, coal seam height, mining and transportation methods and regulatory issues are similar for the operating mines within each of these three segments. The Illinois Basin segment is comprised of Webster County Coal's Dotiki mining complex, Gibson County Coal's Gibson North mining complex, Hopkins County Coal's Elk Creek mining complex, White County Coal's Pattiki mining complex, Warrior's mining complex, River View's newly constructed mining complex which recently initiated operations, the Gibson South property and certain properties of Alliance Resource Properties. The ARLP Partnership is in the process of permitting the Gibson South property for future mine development. The Central Appalachian segment is comprised of Pontiki's and MC Mining's mining complexes. The Northern Appalachian segment is comprised of Mettiki (MD)'s mining complex, Mettiki (WV)'s Mountain View mining complex, two small third-party mining operations, a mining complex currently under construction at Tunnel Ridge and the Penn Ridge property. The ARLP Partnership is in the process of permitting the Penn Ridge property for future mine development. Other and Corporate includes ARLP Partnership and AHGP marketing and administrative expenses, Matrix Design, Alliance Design, the Mt. Vernon dock activities, coal brokerage activity, MAC and certain properties of Alliance Resource Properties. The coal industry is intensely competitive. The most important factors on which the ARLP Partnership competes are coal price, coal quality (including sulfur and heat content), transportation costs from the mine to the customer and the reliability of supply. The ARLP Partnership's principal competitors include Alpha Natural Resources, Inc., Arch Coal, Inc., CONSOL Energy, Inc., International Coal Group, Inc., James River Coal Company, Massey Energy Company, Murray Energy, Inc., Patriot Coal Corporation and Peabody Energy Corp. The coal mining industry is subject to regulation by federal, state and local authorities on matters such as: employee health and safety; mine permits and other licensing requirements; air quality standards; water quality standards; storage and handling of explosives; wetlands protection; surface subsidence from underground mining; and the effects, if any, that mining has on groundwater quality an
