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 General Electric Co

Bill Nygren and David Herro Comments on General Electric - Oct 08, 2015

We added one new name to the Fund during the quarter: General Electric (NYSE:GE), the global producer of industrial, household and medical goods. GE is a company with businesses we have always admired, but we have previously questioned the stock’s valuation and management’s focus on returns when making capital allocation decisions. However, the appointment of a new CFO in mid-2013 ushered in significant changes. Since then, GE has, in our view, acquired assets cheaply (Alstom) and sold assets at good prices (Synchrony and its appliances division). GE is also significantly reducing its financial services business to focus on those lending activities that are core to its industrial products. The company has totally revamped its variable compensation plan for thousands of employees, emphasizing factors that drive return on invested capital, which should boost future results. Some investors may have a stale opinion of GE after the past 15 years of persistent underperformance, but we believe the remaining businesses will grow in excess of global GDP with high returns on capital. We believe the current valuation is attractive for this good collection of businesses.

From Biill Nygren and David Herro (Trades, Portfolio)'s Q3 Oakmark Global Select Fund commentary.

Bill Nygren Comments on General Electric - Jan 09, 2015

General Electric (GE - $25.27)

General Electric is a company with businesses we have always admired, but we have questioned management’s focus on returns when making capital allocation decisions. However, the appointment of a new CFO in mid-2013 ushered in significant changes. Since then, GE has, in our view, acquired assets cheaply (Alstom) and sold assets at good prices (Synchrony and its appliances division). In 2015 the company plans to totally revamp its variable compensation plan for thousands of employees, emphasizing factors that drive return on invested capital, which should boost future results. We believe there is substantial opportunity to improve gross margins, and the stock trades for just under a market multiple on 2016 earnings. Some investors may have a stale opinion of GE after the past 15 years of persistent underperformance, but we believe it’s a good investment at the current price.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s Oakmark Fund – 4Q 2014 Letter.

Is Carl Icahn Right About AIG? AIG is probably worth less than the sum of its parts, but a breakup might be harder to achieve than Icahn thinks

Bill Nygren: Party Like It's 1908 Baseball and business are similar
As I write this, something wonderful is happening in Chicago: There is excitement about winning an October baseball game for the first time in 12 years.1 The Chicago Cubs are finally back in the playoffs. As every Chicago Cubs fan knows, it has been a long road back from our last World Series win in 1908. In 2003, the Cubs were one game from going to the World Series, leading the Florida Marlins three games to one, but went on to lose three consecutive games to the eventual champions. Since then, the Cubs compiled a cumulative regular season record of 90 games below .500 and lost all six of their playoff games, bringing their postseason losing streak to nine games. Until this year. Read more...
