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.

Gap, Inc., was incorporated in the State of California in July 1969 and was reincorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in May 1988. It is a specialty retailer offering clothing, accessories, and personal care products for men, women, children, and babies under the Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Piperlime, and Athleta brands. Founded in 1969, the Company's stores offer a selection of classically styled casual apparel at moderate price points. Products range from wardrobe basics such as denim, khakis, and T-shirts to fashion apparel, accessories, and personal care products for men and women. It entered the children's apparel market with the introduction of GapKids in 1986 and BabyGap in 1989. These stores offer casual apparel and accessories in the tradition of Gap style and quality for children, ages: newborn through pre-teen. It also offers maternity apparel. It launched GapBody in 1998 offering women's underwear, sleepwear, loungewear, and sports and active apparel. It also operates Gap Outlet stores, which carry similar categories of products.
