••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.

Shares of ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS), the leading global provider of simulation software, fell in the quarter due to macroeconomic concerns, particularly in emerging markets. We beli eve ANSYS can sustainably grow revenue at low double digit rates in the current macro environment and can accelerate to mid-teens growth when macro conditions improve. Management is increasingly willing to deploy cash for share repurchases, which we view as a favor able indicator for the long term. Baron Growth Fund has about tripled its money in this investment ov er the past five years. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Funds Comments on ANSYS Inc. - May 02, 2014

Shares of ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS), the leading global provider of simulation software, fell on rekindled macroeconomic concerns, particularly in the emerging markets, and their potential impact on ANSYS's near-term revenue growth rate. We believe ANSYS can sustainably grow its revenues at low-double digit rates in the current macro environment, and we believe that it can accelerate to mid-teens growth if macro conditions improve. Management is increasingly willing to deploy the company's significant cash balance for share repurchases, which we view as a favorable indicator of its long-term prospects.

Baron Funds Comments on ANSYS Inc. - Aug 05, 2013

Shares of ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS), the market leader in simulation-driven product development, declined during the quarter after reporting first quarter results that were negatively impacted by slower end market demand. Despite the near term headwind, we believe that ANSYS is the dominant global provider of simulation software, and will benefit from long-term secular adoption of its simulation tools. We also believe that ANSYS' management will increasingly deploy cash to accelerate the pace of share repurchases. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Funds Comments on ANSYS Inc. - Aug 02, 2013

ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS), the market leader in simulation-driven product development software, declined after reporting quarterly results that were negatively impacted by slower end market demand. Despite the near-term headwind, we believe that ANSYS remains the dominant global provider of simulation software and that the company stands to benefit from the ongoing adoption of its simulation tools. We also believe that ANSYS will increasingly use its cash to repurchase its shares, which we believe will generate additional shareholder value.
