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.

Top Ranked Articles about Berkshire Hathaway Inc

Weitz Investment Management Comments on Berkshire Hathaway
Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) is also an active acquirer, both at the parent company level and through its various subsidiaries. Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) is holding cash reserves of $40-50 billion and has expressed strong interest in making more very large acquisitions. Berkshire recently agreed to swap its long-time holdings of the Washington Post Company (now called Graham Holdings) for a TV station and Berkshire shares held by that company. When completed, this tax-efficient transaction will reduce the number of Berkshire shares outstanding and add another cash generating asset to the fold. Berkshire is constantly growing and evolving as a group of operating businesses but also, in extreme stock market dislocations like 2008, Warren has the courage and capacity to make bold investment moves. Berkshire has been a holding in our stock funds Read more...
Wally Weitz Q2 Shareholder Letter
In many ways, the second quarter of 2014 was a continuation of the past several quarters. After a weather-induced first quarter dip in GDP, the U.S. economy resumed its modest recovery from the “Great Recession” of 2007-09. The Federal Reserve “tapered” its quantitative easing (QE) program but still purchased $310 billion of bonds during the first half of the year. U.S. stocks continued to drift up—the conventional wisdom being that while valuations were not compelling, as long as the Fed was providing “liquidity” and near-zero interest rates, it was safe to continue buying. In fact, failure to keep buying exposed investors to the risk of being left out of the continuing bull market.

A Few Takeaways from Revisiting Munger's Partnership
I was rereading "Damn Right!: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio)" last night and the chapter on Munger’s partnership drew great attention from me. I was familiar with Munger’s partnership’s performance, which was outlined in Buffett’s famous 1984 article The Superinvestors of The Graham-and-Doddsville. However, I never bothered to dig deeper into Munger’s portfolio in 1974. When I did, I found something incredibly interesting. Here is what I found followed by the original description from Jane Lowe’s book. Read more...
Buffett's Berkshire Buys Verizon, Boosts Stake in Liberty Global, Wal-Mart
Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) is now joined by his two investing side-kicks, Ted Weschler and Todd Combs, who make independent decisions about stocks for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B)’s portfolio. The three have unveiled their first-quarter stock activity. The new buy was Verizon (VZ), with sizable adds going to Liberty Global Plc (LBTYK)(LBTYA) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT). Read more...

Some Thoughts on the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting

David Rolfe Comments on Berkshire Hathaway
Although we view Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) to be an exceptional growth and profitability machine, that doesn't mean Mr. Market agrees with us. In other words, despite our expectations for double-­‐digit BVPS growth and value-­‐added advantages, growth could turn out to be "not growth." Essentially, we could be wrong. While this might sound helpless, quite the contrary, we believe it is this admission of potential error that allows us to seek an effective cushion from the very risk of "not growth." If Chapter 20 of the Intelligent Investor just came to mind, then kudos to you! If not, we understand, particularly because Ben Graham's examples of a "margin of safety" are much more draconian than we use. But the concept of preserving capital by not overpaying for the future earnings stream of a business is very much the same. Read more...
Berkshire - The Powerhouse Strengthened in 2013
Three weeks ago, I wrote an article that covered a few noteworthy sections from Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s annual letter to shareholders (that sentence used to start with the word “Yesterday,” but I’ve been busy!). While that letter gets all the attention, it’s a summary by design; it does not make a deep dive into the results like an investor can with the 10-K. As such, there are likely to be nuggets in the annual report that don’t make it into Warren’s letter; this article will take a closer look at some sections worth further discussion, mainly from the 10-K.
