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 Cemex SAB de CV

Mason Hawkins Comments on Cemex - Aug 13, 2013

Toward the end of the second quarter, we repurchased a small position in Cemex (CX) convertible bonds, which we sold earlier in the year after tightening spreads and a rising equity price pushed the price to our appraisal. More recently, the converts became attractive when investors broadly fled emerging markets, the peso weakened, and the Mexican government paused infrastructure spending. Longer term, we believe Mexico public improvements will increase, and Cemex also will benefit from recovery in the U.S.

From Mason Hawkins' semi-annual 2013 letter.

Cemex SAB de CV was founded in 1906. It is a cement manufacturer with operations in North America, Europe, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and Asia. It is a holding company of entities which main activities are oriented to the construction industry, through the production, marketing, distribution and sale of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates and other construction materials. Cement is a binding agent, which, when mixed with sand, stone or other aggregates and water, produces either ready-mix concrete or mortar. It manufactures cement through a closely controlled chemical process, which begins with the mining and crushing of limestone and clay, and, in some instances, other raw materials. The clay and limestone are then pre-homogenized, a process which consists of combining different types of clay and limestone. It owns the registered trademarks for its brands in Mexico, such as 'Tolteca,' 'Monterrey,' 'Maya,' 'Anahuac,' 'Campana,' 'Gallo,' and 'Centenario.' The Company's competitors includes Lafarge Tarmac, Heidelberg, Aggregate Industries ,Hope Construction Materials , Dyckerhoff, Holcim, Schwenk Lafarge, Italcementi and Vicat. The Company's operations are subject to laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment in the various jurisdictions in which it operates, such as regulations regarding the release of cement dust into the air or emissions of greenhouse gases.
