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.

Guru Investment Theses on Genesee & Wyoming Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Genesee & Wyoming Inc. - Aug 05, 2013

Shares of Genesee & Wyoming, Inc. (GWR), a leading short-line railroad, declined in the second quarter, despite reporting robust volume and pricing trends after its transformational acquisition of competitor RailAmerica. The deal has been highly accretive given the low cost of financing and significant synergies. The combined entity makes Genesee the dominant regional operator in the U.S., adding revenue diversity and cementing barriers to entry. We see no fundamental reason for the decline. (Matt Weiss)

From Baron Funds’ second quarter 2013 commentary.
