••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

John Rogers Comments on Bristow Group Inc. - Dec 12, 2013

First comes Bristow Group Inc. (NYSE:BRS), which provides helicopter services to offshore energy rigs, and is a holding in our traditional mid-cap, small-to-mid cap, and small-cap portfolios. Although energy exploration and production can clearly fluctuate, Bristow offsets those shifts through long-term contracts lasting roughly three to five years. Furthermore, Bristow receives “monthly standing charges”—meaning it gets paid whether its helicopters fly or not—amounting to 70% of its operating income.

From John Rogers' November 2013 commentary.
