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.

Business Description

Industry: Agriculture » Agricultural Inputs
Compare:SYT, POT, AVD, AGU, MON » details
Griffin Land and Nurseries Inc. was incorporated as Culbro Realty and Development Corporation in 1970 and was a wholly owned subsidiary of Culbro Corporation. In early 1997, prior to the Distribution, the Company's name was changed to Griffin Land & Nurseries, Inc. The Company is engaged in two lines of business: the real estate business comprised of the ownership, construction, leasing and management of commercial and industrial properties and the development of residential subdivisions on real estate owned by Griffin in Connecticut and Massachusetts and the landscape nursery products business comprised of the growing of containerized landscape nursery products for sale mainly to retail garden center operators, landscape nursery mass merchandisers and wholesale sales and service centers, whose main customers are landscape contractors. The Company's real estate division, Griffin Land, is directly engaged in the real estate development business on parts of its land in Connecticut. Griffin Land develops portions of its properties for industrial, commercial and residential use and may also endeavor to sell some of its non-core land holdings either before or after obtaining development approvals. Griffin Land might seek to acquire and develop properties not presently owned and might seek to acquire existing buildings. The landscape nursery operations of the company are operated by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Imperial Nurseries, Inc. Imperial is a grower and, to a small extent, broker of wholesale landscape nursery stock. Imperial grows containerized landscape nursery plants for sale to independent garden centers, rewholesalers, whose main customers are landscape contractors, and mass merchandisers. Imperial's major markets are in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic areas of the United States. Griffin's real estate business competes on the bases of location, price, availability of space, convenience and amenities. The Company is subject to federal, state and local laws, ordinances and regulations, an owner or operator of real estate might be required to investigate and clean up hazardous or toxic substances or petroleum product releases at such property.
