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 Consol Energy Inc

Mason Hawkins Comments on CONSOL Energy - Oct 20, 2014

CONSOL Energy (CNX) posted a negative 18% return in the quarter. Over half of our appraisal is attributable to the company’s gas reserves in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays. To monetize gas production value, Executive Chairman Brett Harvey and CEO Nick Deluliis successfully completed an initial public offering (IPO) of a midstream Master Limited Partnership (MLP) at metrics above both our appraisal and the projected price in the recent quarter. Approximately 40% of our appraisal is in CONSOL’s coal assets. As the low-cost producer in Appalachia due to its use of long wall mining methods, the company plans to shift more of its met coal sales to domestic customers — a competitive move that will pressure overleveraged, high cost producers. The company’s variety of assets, including the Baltimore port terminal, provides multiple options for gaining value recognition without reliance on commodity price increases.

Longleaf Partners Fund Comments on CONSOL Energy - Jul 24, 2014

CONSOL Energy (CNX) returned 15% in the quarter and 21% YTD. The company announced better-than-expected earnings due to lower coal costs and stronger gas pricing and guided gas production growth of 30% over the next two years. Management is focusing on building value per share through monetizing non-core assets and moving forward with a MLP of the midstream gas assets in the second half of 2014.

Mason Hawkins's Longleaf Partners Comments on CONSOL Energy - Oct 25, 2013

Other strong performers in the quarter included Level 3, up 27%, and CONSOL Energy (CNX), up 25%. At Level 3, since taking over as CEO in April, Jeff Storey has implemented the necessary steps to grow top line and increase cash flow by reducing costs and focusing on higher margin enterprise customers. Brett Harvey, CEO at CONSOL indicated that management is exploring the sale of assets and could potentially split the company into various parts: natural gas, coal, and infrastructure. Even with meaningful recent stock gains, both companies remain among our most discounted names.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Consol Energy - Aug 13, 2013

The Fund's largest detractor in the quarter was Consol Energy (CNX), which fell 19% as lower coal prices and regulatory uncertainty punished all coal producers. The weak quarter also made CNX the largest performance detractor for the YTD with a 15% decline. Slowing Chinese demand has reverberated into worldwide price compression in met coal, which is used to make steel and is less than 15% of our CNX appraisal. Thermal coal used for power generation comprises much more of CNX's output and value. Less than 5% of the thermal coal CNX sold in 2012 went to power plants that are at risk of shutting down in the near term based on regulatory actions. Importantly, half of Consol's value is tied to its natural gas assets in the Utica and Marcellus shale plays, which arguably benefit if coal faces increased environmental regulation. The company also owns a port in Baltimore.
