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 Acuity Brands Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Acuity Brands - Sep 19, 2016

We are also invested in Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE:AYI), North America’s leading provider of innovative lighting systems. With solid brands and an extensive agency network, we believe Acuity stands to benefit from secular demand for more energy-efficient lighting, generated by government regulations and tax savings in the near term and significant cost savings in the long term. Acuity services the commercial real estate construction industry, and with lighting comprising 21% of energy use in commercial buildings, we see additional potential growth driven by the trend toward “smart” buildings and cities, and the retrofit opportunity for older, less efficient structures.

Baron Funds Comments on Acuity Brands Inc. - Jan 14, 2016

We also own Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE:AYI), which provides LED lighting systems for commercial real estate facilities. After our initial purchase in 2011, the stock dropped off sharply after an earnings miss. We used the weakness to significantly increase our position. At the time of purchase, Acuity’s revenues were $1.7 billion. Annual revenues have since grown. to $2.7 billion.With its strong brands, extensive network, and expertise in complex lighting schemes, we think Acuity will benefit from the construction trend in energy-smart buildings and the growing number of buildings being retrofit with energy efficient lighting systems.
