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 Amazon.com Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Amazon - Jul 10, 2014

That brings me to our newest position, which will no doubt make some question our credentials as value investors: Amazon (AMZN).



Consensus forward earnings for Amazon are a little over a dollar. At the median forward P/E multiple, Amazon would be priced in the low $20s. So, even though the stock fell $124 from its January high of $408 to a May low of $284, its P/E ratio remained in nosebleed territory. But we have never believed the P/E ratio was the be-all and end-all for valuation. Amazon is a retailer – a very efficient retailer. When we compare stocks in the same industry, we often compare their market caps to their sales rather than their earnings. Since 2001, Amazon has generally traded at a cap-to-sales ratio of two to four times that of the average bricks-and-mortar retailer. Having fallen to just under two recently, one might say that, as an advantaged retailer, Amazon looks somewhat attractive.



But that metric misses an important change in Amazon’s business. Third-party sales (sales on amazon.com where the seller is not Amazon) have grown more rapidly than Amazon’s direct business. And on those transactions, accounting rules credit only Amazon's commission as revenue. So if you buy a $100 item on amazon.com from a third party, Amazon is only allowed to show about $13 of revenue, nearly all of which is gross profit. For third-party sales, Amazon is effectively functioning as the mall owner, collecting a percentage of sales as rent. Amazon earns less gross profit on that sale than an average retailer would, but it is also a much lower risk endeavor. For that reason, we think a dollar of third-party sales should be worth about the same as a dollar that Amazon sells directly.



It gets interesting when we adjust our cap-to-sales ratio comparison to include estimated gross third-party sales. Instead of selling at twice the ratio to sales of the average bricks–and-mortar retailer, Amazon is selling at only 80%. So, relative to gross sales, Amazon's stock would have to increase 25% to be priced consistent with the very companies whose survival Amazon is threatening. On that metric, Amazon has never been cheaper.



Should Amazon sell at a discount on sales? The answer largely rests on what Amazon could earn if it wasn’t investing so heavily for future growth. For most asset heavy businesses, growth investment is primarily on the balance sheet, and is slowly expensed on the income statement as depreciation throughout its useful life. In an asset–lite business like Amazon, however, most growth spending gets directly expensed to the income statement, creating a much larger immediate reduction in income. We believe that if Amazon sharply curtailed its growth spending so that it only grew at the rate other retailers grow, it could produce similar operating margins. But we don't want them to do that. We believe that management is maximizing value by investing heavily for super-normal organic growth. So, yes, Amazon is a rapidly growing business. But at this price, we believe it is also a value stock.

Baron Funds Comments on Amazon.com - May 29, 2014

Shares of Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN), the world's largest online retailer, fell 16% due to weaker than anticipated revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2013. We expect the company to improve growth rates going forward. Amazon continues to expand into large new growth markets, including apparel, consumer product goods, consumer electronics, grocery, and Amazon Web Services. Given that e-commerce still represents less than 10% of retail sales today, we believe that the ongoing shift to online retailing represents a multi-year growth opportunity from which Amazon should benefit.

The Amazon Valuation Dilemma
Conventional wisdom from value investing says that Amazon (AMZN) is extremely overpriced. In Ben Graham’s “The Intelligent Investor”, he says that it is generally not wise to buy a stock over 1.5 times its book value, although it would be okay to slightly overpay if the P/E was below 15. Now how about a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 14.3 and a P/E of 509? It seems absurd that a value investor would consider buying this stock given those extremely high valuations. But when you take a step back to think about it, how much would someone be willing to pay for a company that is single handedly destroying everyone in the retail industry? I am pretty sure it would be more than $15.9 billion, 1.5 times Amazon’s book value. Read more...
