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

DineEquity Inc, together with its subsidiaries owns, franchises & operates two restaurant concepts, Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar within the casual dining category and International House of Pancakes in the family dining category of the restaurant.

DineEquity Inc was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in 1976 with the name IHOP Corp. Effective June 2, 2008, the name of the Company was changed to DineEquity, Inc. The Company together with its subsidiaries owns and operates two restaurant concepts: Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar, or Applebee's, in the bar and grill segment of the casual dining category of the restaurant industry, and International House of Pancakes, or IHOP, in the family dining category of the restaurant industry. The franchise operations segment consists of restaurants operated by Applebee's franchisees in the United States, one United States territory and 15 countries outside of the United States and restaurants operated by IHOP franchisees and area licensees in the United States, two United States territories and eight countries outside of the United States. The company restaurant operations segment consists of Applebee's company-operated restaurants, IHOP company-operated restaurants and restaurants reacquired from franchisees and operated by IHOP on a temporary basis until refranchised. All Company-operated restaurants are located in the United States. Applebee's competes in the casual dining segment against national and multi-state operators such as Chili's, T.G.I.
