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.

These portfolios generally consist of various consumer receivables such as charged-off receivables which accounts that have been written-off by the originators and may have been previously serviced by collection agencies; semi-performing receivables which accounts where the debtor is currently making partial or irregular monthly payments, but the accounts may have been written-off by the originators; and Performing receivables which accounts where the debtor is making regular monthly payments that may or may not have been delinquent in the past. A large portion of its distressed consumer receivables are MasterCard, Visa and other credit card accounts which were charged-off by the issuers or providers for non-payment. The business is subject to extensive federal and state regulations.
