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 FireEye Inc

Baron Funds Comments on FireEye Inc. - Oct 25, 2016

Shares of cybersecurity software vendor FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE) fell during the third quarter on disappointing guidance as new management reset expectations for 2016 in an effort to build a solid base for 2017. New management’s plan is to right-size the organization, launch new subscription products that expand the customer base and respond to customer needs driven by the shift to the cloud and mobile, and to fine tune go-to-market partnerships. We reduced our weighting in FireEye, but retain a smaller investment in light of the significant long-term opportunity we believe management is attacking with its leading technology. (Gilad Shany)

Baron Funds Comments on FireEye - Feb 15, 2016

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE) is the next generation network security company that pioneered Advanced Persistent Threat Protection. The shares fell 35% after the company reported disappointing third quarter results and reduced guidance for next quarter’s revenue growth. Several executive departures did little to instill investor confidence. It seems that FireEye is shifting its approach from incident driven sales to a more holistic risk mitigation solution, which may or may not work in the short term. It seems to us, that despite ebbs and flows, cyberattacks are here to stay and we believe that FireEye has the best post-breach incident response service, which minimizes remediation time and damage. This service consistently gets FireEye in the door and gives them an opportunity to introduce and sell their other security products, potentially allowing them to build a real cybersecurity platform of the future.

Baron Funds Comments on FireEye - Feb 08, 2016

Shares of cybersecurity company FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE) fell on reports of a disappointing third quarter and reduced fourth quarter financial expectations. Several executive departures also led to selling pressure. FireEye is shifting its focus from incident-driven sales to a more holistic risk mitigation approach that we believe will help stabilize results. We believe the trend of increasing cyberattack activity, despite ebbs and flows, is here to stay and that FireEye will be a beneficiary. We think FireEye also enjoys a lead over competition through its incident response service. (Gilad Shany)

Baron Funds Comments on FireEye Inc. - Nov 13, 2015

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE) is the next generation network security company that pioneered Advanced Persistent Threat Protection. The company has grown its sales by more than 10x over the last four years. While FireEye reported strong second quarter results with a significant beat on profitability metrics, the stock gave up most of its earlier gains on the news that the company’s CFO was unexpectedly leaving. We believe that FireEye has the best post-breach incident response service, which minimizes remediation time and damage and is the reason it is frequently the first call for companies that have been victimized. This service consistently gets FireEye into the door and gives them an opportunity to introduce and sell their other security products, potentially allowing them to build a real cybersecurity platform of the future.
