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.

My 3 Favorite High-Yields With Low Debt And Payout Ratios
Yesterday, I made a screen of Dividend Contenders with low long-term debt to equity ratios as well as slim payouts. Today I'd like to widen the latest screen to High-Yields with a market capitalization over $300 million USD. Most of the high-yielding stocks are full of debt.

Arlington Asset Investment Corp., is a Virginia corporation. The Company is an investment firm that acquires and holds mortgage-related and other assets. It acquires residential mortgage-backed securities (MBS), either issued by U.S. government agencies or guaranteed as to principal and interest by U.S. government agencies or U.S. government-sponsored entities. The Company operates mainly in the United States. It manages its portfolio of mortgage holdings with the goal of obtaining a high risk-adjusted return on capital. Historically, based on market conditions, it believes its MBS assets have provided it with higher relative risk-adjusted rates of return than most other portfolio opportunities it has evaluated. The Company is subject to examination by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and other taxing authorities in jurisdictions where the Company has significant business operations, such as Virginia.
