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:AMP, AMG, BEN, BLK, BK » details
Duff & Phelps Corporation was incorporated on April 23, 2007. The Company is a provider of independent financial advisory and investment banking services. It provides services through two segments: Financial Advisory and Investment Banking. The Financial Advisory segment provides services related to valuation advisory, corporate finance consulting, tax services, and dispute and legal management consulting; the revenue model associated with this segment is generally based on time and materials. The Investment Banking segment provides merger and acquisition advisory services, transaction opinions and global restructuring advisory services; the revenue model associated with this segment is generally based on fixed retainers, fixed fees and contingent fees upon the successful completion of a transaction. The Company provides its services globally to a number of companies who are in need of industry-leading, customized financial advice. Its clients include publicly-traded and privately-held companies, government entities, and investment firms such as private equity firms and hedge funds. Additionally, it maintains relationships with law, accounting and investment banking firms from whom it receives referral business. The Company has a collaborative culture that is based on a team approach. This approach promotes the cross-selling of new business opportunities across practice groups and enables it to deliver the most appropriate Duff & Phelps professionals to meet a client's needs. The Company's mission is to help its clients protect, maximize and recover value. The foundation of its services is its ability to provide independent advice on issues involving highly technical and complex assessments in the areas of valuation, transactions, financial restructuring, disputes and taxation. With 878 experienced and credentialed client service professionals at December 31, 2009, the Company serves a global client base through offices in 23 cities, comprised of offices in 17 U.S. cities, including New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles, and six international offices located in Amsterdam, London, Munich, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo. Its competition varies by segment. Within its Financial Advisory segment, the Company competes mainly with the consulting practices of major accounting firms, such as the Big Four, and regional and global consulting companies. Within its Investment Banking segment, the Company competes with both boutique M&A and restructuring advisory firms as well as large, diversified investment banks. The main competitive factors in both segments include the reputation of the firm and its professionals, technical expertise and experience, the ability to rapidly deploy large teams for client engagements, geographic presence, and to a lesser extent, price. As a participant in the financial services industry, the Company is subject to regulation in the U.S., the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
