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.

Baron Funds Comments on Facebook - May 29, 2014

Shares of Facebook Inc. (FB), the world's largest social network, were up 10% in the first quarter, driven by improvements in consumer engagement and mobile monetization. We continue to believe that Facebook is in the early stages of building out its global advertising business. The company has an attractive customer base and stands to benefit from expected improvements in the price of advertising on its platform. Its recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp provide further growth opportunities and possible synergies with the Facebook network

Baron Funds Comments on Facebook Inc. - Nov 25, 2013

Facebook Inc. (FB) is the largest social networking company in the world with in excess of one billion active monthly users. The company built a unique platform where users continue to demonstrate stickiness and high engagement. Facebook is in the early stages of monetizing its customer base and we continue to see more evidence that its messaging is starting to resonate with marketers and advertisers world-wide. We believe that the company will successfully navigate the transition to mobile and that annualized revenues per customer can continue to increase meaningfully. In addition, we see significant positive optionality from eventual monetization opportunities in search, video, publishing and Instagram.

From Ron Baron's Baron Funds third quarter 2013 commentary.

Classic Richard Feynman - The Difference Between Knowing the Name of Something and Knowing Something
The next Monday, when the fathers were all back at work, we kids were playing in a field. One kid says to me, “See that bird? What kind of bird is that?” I said, “I haven’t the slightest idea what kind of a bird it is.” He says, “It’s a brown-throated thrush. Your father doesn’t teach you anything!” But it was the opposite. He had already taught me: “See that bird?” he says. “It’s a Spencer’s warbler.” (I knew he didn’t know the real name.) “Well, in Italian, it’s a Chutto Lapittida. In Portuguese, it’s a Bom da Peida. In Chinese, it’s a Chung-long-tah, and in Japanese, it’s a Katano Tekeda. You can know the name of that bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird. You’ll only know about humans in different places, and what they call the bird. So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing—that’s what counts.” (I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.) Read more...
