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 Cisco Systems Inc

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Cisco Systems Inc - Jul 25, 2014

Networking and communications company Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) outperformed as it reported earnings and guidance that were better than consensus expectations. The company’s gross margins improved, which we believe is a sign that the business is stabilizing.

From Diamond Hill Capital (Trades, Portfolio)'s Select Fund Second Quarter 2014 Commentary.

Meridian Funds Comments on Cisco Systems Inc - Jun 20, 2014

Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) also generated losses for the Fund during the period as earnings expectations were recently cut due to weakness in emerging markets. We are regarding our investment in Cisco with caution, but for now we continue to hold the shares due to the attractive dividend yield and the potential for dividend growth, even with muted earnings growth, enabled by the company’s low payout ratio and strong balance sheet.



From Meridian Funds's semi-annual report ended December 31, 2013.

Yacktman Funds Comments on Cisco Systems - Mar 12, 2014

Cisco Systems Inc. shares fell after the company reported disappointing results and issued poor forward guidance, largely due to weakness in emerging markets. We think the shares continue to represent extremely good value given the strong balance sheet and earnings power of the business.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Cisco Systems Inc. - Jan 30, 2014

Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) shares fell after the company reported disappointing results and issued poor forward guidance, largely due to weakness in emerging markets. We think the shares continue to represent extremely good value given the strong balance sheet and earnings power of the business. C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc.'s shares declined modestly due to continued margin pressure in its North American truckload brokerage business.
