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 Chart Industries Inc

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Chart Industries - Oct 20, 2014

Chart Industries (GTLS), which manufactures compressed and liquid natural gas tanks and heat exchangers, has detracted from performance during the third quarter as well as on a year-to-date basis. Longer term, the demand for Chart’s natural gas equipment should increase as significant new natural gas discoveries in the U.S. and overseas will likely keep prices in check relative to oil and diesel alternatives. In the short term, though, the market and infrastructure for these natural gas devices has been slower to develop in the U.S. than hoped. The company’s China-based operations have slowed significantly in keeping with that country’s current economic stumbles.

Baron Funds Comments on Chart Industries Inc. - Feb 25, 2014

After almost doubling in the first nine months of 2013, shares of Chart Industries, Inc. (GTLS) pulled back after third quarter results came in below expectations and management cut its 2013 guidance. Although timing of short term billings of large projects contributed to the shortfall, long term indicators such as backlog continued to show strength. We continue to see liquid natural gas increasing its share of global energy consumption and view Chart as a direct beneficiary, given its industry leading position in storage, distribution, chemicals, energy and biomed gases.

From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baron Funds fourth quarter 2013 commentary.
