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 LM Ericsson Telephone Co

Brandes Funds Comments on Ericsson - Aug 24, 2016

The All-Cap Investment Committee initiated a position in Sweden-based Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC). The company is the global leader in wireless infrastructure, with 40% of the world’s mobile traffic running through its networks.





Ericsson’s shares have suffered due to concerns about demand weakness in North America and Japan. Additionally, in Europe and elsewhere, the rise of lower-cost Chinese competitors has presented a challenge for the company, and margins have been volatile due to its use of loss-making contracts to gain market share. Investors have also expressed longer-term concerns about technology risk. As wireless technology has been shifting toward an all-Internet Protocol architecture, Ericsson has been heavily investing in next-generation technologies and it is unclear whether these investments will generate adequate returns. Lastly, the company has a large exposure to the wireless access layer segment, a portion of the communications equipment market which may face a risk of commoditization as network architecture shifts.





We believe these concerns have been more than reflected in Ericsson’s share price. Demand ups and downs can be expected, in our opinion, as the company operates in a mature industry subject to volatile revenue streams. While recent margins have been mediocre, we believe this has been due to a temporary shift in product mix. In addition, Ericsson has launched a cost-restructuring program to further increase its efficiency. A margin recovery could be a catalyst to drive renewed investor interest in the shares.





We have factored technology risk into our assessment of the company’s intrinsic value estimate and believe Ericsson maintains strong intellectual property in wireless technology. The company remains a global leader in managed services, a key growth area in the industry where Ericsson has an edge due to its ability to offer end-to-end solutions. These factors combine to make Ericsson an attractive investment opportunity to us.
