GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

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 EMC Corp

David Rolfe Comments on EMC - Jan 27, 2014

EMC (EMC)’s stock was flat over the course of 2013.  In fact, the stock has been flat over the past three years – sigificantly underperforming the near 50% gain in the S&P 500 Index.  The stock has been buffetted over fears that the Company’s current decelerated growth is in secular decline due to a number of competitive threats.  The first threat is that flash storage and software-defined storage will cannibalize traditional hard disk drives.  Two, the public cloud is only a threat (and not an opportunity) that disintermediates information technology (IT) spend from both EMC and VMware (EMC maintains an over 80% ownership stake in VMW).  Third, VMware’s entrenched vSphere gets displaced by Open-Source and Microsoft’s Hyper-V.  Fourth, recent premium-priced acquisitions of Data Domain and Isilon are evidence of lack of internal product development.

EMC’s products – both hardware and software - are litearlly a geek’s wonderland alphabet soup, which include Storage Area Network (SAN), Network Attached Storage (NAS), Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Virtual SAN, All-Flash XtremIO, Atmos, Avamar,  Data Domain, Isilon, Pivotal, ViPR Software Defined Storgae, VMAX, VNX, VNXe, VPLEX, VSPEX (none of these are typos).  Information storage makes up 70% of revenues and virtualization 23% of revenues.  Products generate 55% of revenues.  Services generate 45% of revenues.  The Company’s gross profit split is approximaltey 67% data storage and 31% virtualization.

The bear case on the Company has been so relentless as to render EMC a “broken growth company.”  Indeed, the stock’s forward P/E is just 11.5X.  In addition, if you exclude the Company’s 80% stake in VMware ($30 billion – cost of all of VMW in 2003 just $635 million) and net cash ($8.5 billion), the remaining EMC business “stub” is valued at only 4-5X earnings.  Mr. Market has thus concluded the Company’s entrenched ecosystem; sticky customers and unparalleled distribution (direct sales force) are of little value.  In addition, such an undemanding valuation assumes further that the Company’s key new products such as Pivotal (“the Android operating system of cloud computing”), XtremeIO and ViPR will never ramp-up quickly in the hundreds of millions of dollars.  On the contrary, we expect EMC to post consolidated revenue growth in the mid-to-high single digits, with modestly expanding margins – mostly thanks to VMware’s relentless push deeper into data center virtualization and automation.  Further, the stock’s attractiveness has not gone unnoticed as the Company recently announced a new dividend and multibillion stock buyback.  These factors should combine to generate the double-digit bottom-line growth we expect over the next few years.  In our view the stock’s downside over the next year or so is just -10%, while the prospective upside to fair vale is +33%.

Wedgewood Partners David Rolfe Comments on EMC - Jul 19, 2013

During the quarter, we increased our weighting in EMC Corp. (EMC) after the stock had been flat over the trailing 12 months, compared to the over 20% run up in the S&P 500 Index. Combined with EMC's double digit free cash flow generation, the stock has gotten cheaper, in our view, through benign neglect. Much of the neglect stems from perceived threats to EMC's role in enterprise data centers. However, as a developer of IT infrastructure, it is normative for EMC to face competition from disruptive new technologies and workflows, especially at the enterprise scale. For example, just a few years ago, EMC's most relevant competitors seemed to be Hewlett Packard, Dell, IBM and NetApp, whereas today, Amazon and a host (no pun intended) of other players in the acronym heavy cloud services industry are more apt at competing with EMC for a dollar of profitability. However, across our multi year holding period, one of the most powerful competitive advantages at EMC has been its robust distribution network. While not nearly as exciting as the technology that gets distributed, EMC's distribution advantage p resents formidable barriers to entry for bot h legacy and new competitors. T he Company can rapidly scale emerging technologies across an unparalleled, information infrastructure focused direct sales force and customer base that is over half a million and g rowing. Of course, most of EMC's competitors know this, but cultivating several hundred thousand points of sale is "easier said, than done." For instance, in 2009, EMC purchased a competitor Data Domain and its roughly $300 million in annual revenues. Not quite four years later, EMC's Data Domain unit is generating revenues at an over $1.5 billion annual run rate (over 400% growth). In a similar vein, during 2010 EMC purchased Isilon Systems, a competitor in scale out storage with roughly $200 million in annual revenues. Less than three years later, this EMC unit is generating revenue at an over $1 billion annual run rate ( again, over 400% growth). It is not clear if these companies would have been able to grow this quickly as standalone competitors that did not have access to EMC's distribution network. What is clear is that significant value was generated for EMC clients and shareholders, thanks to this distinct advantage.

As for VMware (EMC holds a significant ownership share in VMW), after several years of enabling, at least, primitive versions of private clouds for more than 500,000 customers worldwide (including 100% of the Fortune 100), investors are concerned that the proliferation of open source substitutes and public cloud alternatives wil l significantly erode the Company's future earnings power. VMware trades at a historic ally low valuation (a low teen enterprise value to free cash flow multiple, which is half to one third of its recent range), but we think its longer term growth and prof itability prospects are not as dire as the market is implying. While the natural progression for smaller and mid sized business ("SMB") IT departments seems to be the utilization of lower cost, subscription based public cloud services, this will not likely be a winner take all market, especially since EMC has aggressively established itself in the "channel" which is the network of thousands of value added resellers and consultants to SMB IT departments. Further, VMware has a several year head start in cultivating a developer ecosystem, with several thousand applications, many of them mission critical, explicitly supported. In the interim, VMware's product scope is rapidly expanding, thanks to robust reinvestment, where their expertise in abstraction technology puts them at the "tip of the arrow" as data centers become more dependent on the software layer. Further, the value proposition of the public cloud is less robust for larger enterprises, especially those that have long established investments in on site infrastructure, so we believe the barriers to entry into this market segment by VMware rivals and substitutes will be much higher, relative to SMB. In the future, we expect EMC (and VMware) to maintain its competitive positioning in the perpetually changing technology infrastructure industry by continuing to dedicate significant resources towards expanding their product scope – both through acquisition and organically and then maximizing those investments by leveraging their expansive distribution capabilities. So while we recognize the highly competitive nature of enterprise IT innovation, we believe that there is substantial future growth and value still to be recognized in our EMC investment.
