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.

Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:APS.Germany, ARIA.Switzerland,
Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc was organized as a Delaware corporation in April 1991. It is an oncology company. The Company is focused on discovery and development of breakthrough medicines to treat cancers by regulating cell signaling with small molecules. The Company's first approved cancer medicine, Iclusig (ponatinib), and its product candidates, AP26113 and ridaforolimus, were discovered internally by its scientists based on the expertise in computational and structure-based drug design. AP26113 is an investigational inhibitor of anaplastic lymphoma kinase, or ALK. In non-clinical studies, AP26113 also demonstrated that it can inhibit epidermal growth factor receptor, or EGFR, and c-ros oncogene-1, or ROS1. . Iclusig and its drug candidates and preclinical compounds are small molecules that can be readily synthesized by processes that they have developed. The Company do not own or operate manufacturing facilities for the production of clinical or commercial quantities of Iclusig or its product candidates. The company's competitors includes pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies such as Amgen Inc., AstraZeneca PLC, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Celgene Corporation, Eli Lilly and Company, the Roche Group, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Merck KGaA, Novartis AG, Pfizer, Inc., Sanofi-Aventis, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.Inc.
