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 Carnival Corp

Ebola Could Affect Availability of Important Ingredient in Chocolate
The Ebola crisis seems to affect everything it touches – or could have touched. Stocks in airlines, which carried the original patient to the United States and transported one of that patient’s nurses from Cleveland to Dallas earlier this week, largely went down; stocks related to the production of material used in the medical handling of specimens from Ebola patients went up. Well, some did and some did not. Read more...
Carnival: A giant in the cruising industry
As WTI oil price continues to decline to the current $83, the signal of Saudis not to cut output further gives support for the downward momentum. However, the decrease in oil price can be a boom for heavy oil consumption companies, like Carnival (CCL). The immediate effect of oil price might not be apparent as the hedges in CCL will negate some benefits from the near-term oil prices. Nevertheless, if oil price continues to decline in the future, it can really help to lower the operating costs for CCL and eventually benefit the profit margins. Some might argue that the Ebola issue will negatively affect the travel sector. That's true. Nevertheless, for long-term investors, we should take advantage of short-term issues and accumulate stocks with good prospects and sound fundamental support. Looking forward, when CCL can turnaround the negative sentiments around recent accidents and have positive growths in net yields, CCL should be re-evaluated for 30% upside potential. Read more...
Greenblatt Discloses Three of His Short Holdings
In an interview on CNBC last Thursday, Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio), Columbia professor and CIO of Gotham Asset Management, briefly discussed his strategy. Many people are aware of his Magic Formula strategy from his book, “The Little Book that Beats the Market.” The Magic Formula is designed to give the retail investor a simple investing strategy to follow. It is based on buying companies with high returns on capital (ROC) and earnings yields and rebalancing once a year. For the three long/short funds that he manages at Gotham Asset Management, he has a higher level of scrutiny in his investments. According to an interview with Morningstar in October, it took his team six to seven years to research all of the largest companies and be able to update them on a quarterly basis as new information comes out. His research involves going through every balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement and making adjustments from what the companies Read more...
