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.

Traded in other countries:FF6.Germany, FCFS.Mexico
First Cash Financial Services Inc was formed as a Texas corporation in July 1988 and in April 1991, the Company reincorporated as a Delaware corporation. The Company is an operator of retail-based pawn stores in the United States and Mexico. It also operates a small number of stand-alone consumer finance stores in Texas and Mexico. Pawn stores are neighborhood-based retail stores that buy and sell popular consumer items such as consumer electronics, jewelry, power tools, appliances, sporting goods and musical instruments. It also provides a quick and convenient source of small consumer loans to unbanked, under-banked and credit-challenged customers. The Company had 906 locations, consisting of 309 stores across 12 U.S. states and 597 stores across 26 states in Mexico. It manages its pawn and consumer loan operations under three operating segments; U.S. pawn operations, U.S. consumer loan operations and Mexico operations. Additionally, all three segments offer similar and overlapping products and services to a similar customer demographic, operate in similar regulatory environments, and are supported by a single, centralized administrative support platform. The Company's pawn business competes with other pawn store operators, other specialty consumer finance operators, rent-to-own stores and specialty consumer goods retailers. It also competes with financial institutions, such as banks and consumer finance companies, which generally lend on an unsecured as well as a secured basis. The Company is subject to regulation of its pawn stores, credit services, consumer loan and check cashing operations in all of the jurisdictions in which it operates.
