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 Comerica Inc

Third Avenue Management Comments on Comerica - Dec 10, 2015

Comerica (NYSE:CMA) is the largest bank headquartered in Texas; it has a meaningful footprint in California and Michigan. Among the root causes of stock price dislocation was its exposure to Energy and low interest rates, which caused minor earnings per share estimate cuts for 2015. We believe those risks are mis-understood and overstated. While only 7% of CMA’s loan portfolio is linked to energy or “energy related” companies, it has been a source of investor scrutiny and confusion. Investors keep expecting net charge offs to rise, but they have remained marginal. Why? Comerica has an impressive underwriting history and we remain confident history will repeat itself. 95% of its energy loans outstanding are secured. Also, all underwriting decisions were based on “proved reserves” which should mitigate charge-off risk. Charge-offs will rise if the brutal decline in energy prices continues for extended periods of time, but we expect the risks to be manageable and much better than what is priced into the current stock price.

Few banks would benefit more from a rise in interest rates than CMA as 85% of its loan book is floating rate. The Federal Reserve’s reluctance to raise rates has been frustrating, but it will come. When it does, it will have a material impact on CMA’s earnings power.

In our view, CMA has one of the strongest balance sheets in the industry with a Tier 1 Common Equity ratio exceeding 10%. Despite the interest rate headwinds, it is still compounding at high single rates (including dividends). With a little help from rates, that should jump to double digits rates. Yet, CMA common stock only trades at slight premium to tangible book value. We like the potential of getting paid through book value compounding and multiple expansion with limited financial risk. CMA is one of those situations. At slightly over 1x tangible book value of 34.35, we think CMA could also be an accretive takeover target for a number of large US or foreign banks.

Third Avenue Value Fund Comments on Comerica Inc - Sep 12, 2014

We have preferred regional banks for three reasons. First, at TAM we focus on price to tangible book value (P/TBV) as opposed to simple P/B. Tangible book value is a better measure of intrinsic value as it excludes intangible assets which wouldn’t carry much value in liquidation. As discussed earlier, one of the dimensions we focus on as we evaluate companies is the assets. The valuations of KEY and CMA are much closer to peers listed above on a P/TBV basis. Evaluating just a single statistic may provide misleading conclusions when evaluating an investment. Thus, we also consider how well a company can compound its book value over time. As seen in the table above, both KEY and CMA are generating higher returns on assets (ROA) than peers. This is important as companies that generate higher returns deserve premium valuations. Again, we distinguish among the many metrics. We focus on ROA as the measure of ROA does not favor companies that carry higher leverage and perhaps higher risk.



Second, the Tier 1 Common Equity ratios for KEY and CMA compare favorably against the money center peers. This metric indicates that the Fund’s regional banks are as well, if not better, capitalized than money center banks. As discussed in the opening paragraphs of the letter, the integrity of the balance sheet is a key dimension to our analysis.



Third, the chart above also shows the Level III assets for each company. Level III assets are not traded in liquid markets so prices are determined using a company’s internal models. Those prices could be entirely accurate, but as seen during the financial crisis, when liquidity dries up, asset prices of illiquid securities can get distorted quickly. We aren’t willing to take that risk. By focusing on KEY and CMA’s TBV and lower exposure to Level III assets, we gain additional comfort with their balance sheets. The regulators agree with our view. The table above shows “severely stressed capital ratios” from the Federal Reserve test earlier this year. The stress test assumptions are extreme (deep recession, high unemployment, 50% decline in equity prices and 2001 house prices), but the results do provide insight into the strength of the asset portfolios.



KEY and CMA’s above average results on the stress tests are another indication of the high transparency and durability of their balance sheets.



In sum, a discount to book value isn’t good enough for us at TAM to invest in a stock. We also need conviction in adequate downside protection. Investing in companies with low leverage and high quality assets helps us develop that conviction. CMA and KEY fit our strict criteria and have provided solid returns to investors thus far and as both grow book value plus dividends in the future, we are confident those returns will continue.



The Fund invested in the common stocks in KEY and CMA at discounts to tangible book and with the expectation that they could grow book value at double digit rates over time. Given the satisfactory ROAs and BV compounding (trailing twelve month BV growth including dividends: CMA: 12%, KEY: 9.8%), we are happy with how our companies are executing, despite persistently low interest rates and sluggish loan growth. What’s more impressive is that our companies are able to generate higher ROAs despite carrying more excess capital which weighs on returns. Both companies are positive contributors to the Fund’s performance year to date.
