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.

It operates McDonald's branded restaurants under two different operating formats, Company-operated restaurants and franchised restaurants. It divides its operations into four geographical divisions: Brazil; the Caribbean division, consisting of Aruba, Curaçao, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas; NOLAD, consisting of Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama; and SLAD, consisting of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
