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

The global uncertainty that unsettled markets early in the year subsided, which allowed investors to regain focus on domestic fundamentals that overall seem to show progress. The economic surprise of the month and the quarter was the unexpectedly low final result for first-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), which was revised down to a decline of 2.9 percent from a previous estimate of minus 1 percent. Although the first quarter's weakness was well known due to the harsh winter months, the magnitude of the downward revision called into question whether the recovery was faltering.
