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 Cenovus Energy Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Cenovus Energy Inc - Jan 09, 2015

Another way we seek to capture losses is to replace losing stocks with similar, but equally attractive, stocks. An example in the Oakmark Fund from this past quarter was selling our remaining Cenovus (CVE) shares and redeploying the proceeds into Chesapeake (CHK). We believe Cenovus is a fine, well-managed company, but due to rapidly declining oil prices, it had fallen beneath our purchase price. Another company we believed was also fine and well-managed, Chesapeake, had fallen to a price where it appeared to us to be more attractive than Cenovus. So even though Cenovus was far beneath our sell target, we captured the loss, increased our exposure to an energy sector we thought was cheap and switched to a stock we believed was somewhat more attractive.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s 4Q 2014 Market Commentary.

Tweedy Browne Comments on Cenovus - May 06, 2014

n addition to this new position, we got a trading opportunity in Cenovus (CVE), the Canadian oil sands company, and added it to the Global Value Fund and Global Value Fund II – Currency Unhedged. It had previously only been held in the Worldwide High Dividend Yield Value Fund. We also added to our positions in Banco Santander Brasil, Antofagasta, Bangkok Bank, Imperial Tobacco, and Unilever.

Tweedy Browne Comments on Cenovus - Oct 21, 2013

We also added Cenovus (CVE) to the Worldwide High Dividend portfolio during the quarter. This Canadian oilsands operator has a strong production growth profile with low cost in situ oilsands reserves. At purchase, Cenovus was trading at a substantial discount from our estimate of intrinsic value and was paying a dividend yield of 3.2%.
