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.

Meridian Funds Comments on Cadence Design Systems - Sep 08, 2014

Cadence Design Systems (CDNS) provides software technology, design and consulting services and technology. Its primary product is electronic design automation software for the semiconductor industry. The stock rose as the company and industry transition began to show in its operating results. Specifically, industry consolidation has resulted in an improvement in pricing power. Cadence has successfully transitioned to a recurring revenue model, and we expect it to begin deploying its capital via stock repurchases. We trimmed the position modestly during the quarter.
