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: Aerospace & Defense » Aerospace & Defense
Compare:BA, ERJ, EADSY, RYCEY, HON » details
Traded in other countries:JPX.Germany,
AeroVironment Inc designs, tests, and manufactures diversified technological products. It is based in Monrovia, California. These include small, unmanned, remote-control military aircraft and rapid battery-charging stations, though the company's pipeline features many other potential future products such as small building-mounted wind turbines. Inventor Paul MacCready founded the firm in 1971, and the company held its initial public offering in 2007. The firm's unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)--typically used in military surveillance missions--constituted more than 85% of AV's 2008 revenue. During the past few years, the U.S. Department of Defense has awarded several full-rate contracts for small, unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, and AV has thus far won every one. PosiCharge Systems, the company's next- largest business, offers rapid battery-charging stations to customers looking to improve the efficiency of their electric vehicles, such as forklifts. Historically, these vehicles' batteries have had very long recharge and cool-down cycles. With its ability to rapidly recharge any battery and prevent the necessary cool-down period, however, PosiCharge can materially improve the return on such capital equipment. Potential new products include a constantly flying, high-altitude UAV and wind power facilities for buildings.
