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.

Compare:SLG, ARE, HIW, PKY, SIR » details
Traded in other countries:42DA.Germany,
Dupont Fabros Technology Inc was incorporated on March 2, 2007 under the laws of the State of Maryland. The Company is the sole general partner of DuPont Fabros Technology, L.P. or Operating Partnership, and it owned approximately 76.7% of the partnership interests in the Operating Partnership. The Company is a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Through its operating subsidiaries, the Company owns, develops, operates and manages wholesale data centers that are specialized, secure facilities used mainly by national and international technology companies to house, power and cool the computer servers that support many of their critical business processes. The operating and planned development properties are strategically located in the Northern Virginia; suburban Chicago, Illinois; Piscataway, New Jersey and Santa Clara, California markets. The Company has two types of competitors: companies who choose to build, own and operate their own data centers rather than outsource, and owners, operators and developers of both wholesale and colocation data centers. Environmental laws and regulations regarding the handling of regulated substances and wastes apply to the Company's properties, including, in particular, regulations regarding the storage of petroleum for auxiliary or emergency power. The properties in its portfolio are also subject to a number of federal, state and local health and safety requirements, such as state and local fire requirements.
