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 Ansys, Inc.

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.

Baron Funds Comments on ANSYS Inc. - Dec 06, 2012

ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS) is the market leader in simulation-driven product development software. Shares rose 16.3% in the quarter, as the company's earnings report demonstrated accelerating growth in revenues and new bookings signed. The company also repurchased its shares for the first time in several years, an indication, we believe, of management's belief that its shares were notably undervalued.

From Baron Funds’ third quarter commentary.
