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

Guru Investment Theses on Iconix Brand Group Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Iconix - Jul 15, 2013

Iconix (ICON--$29)(ICON) Iconix is a licensing business. It buys the rights to license brands such as Candie’s, London Fog and Peanuts. The products are manufactured by others and sold through major retailers, usually on multi-year contracts. The result is very predictable licensing revenues generated with little capital investment and thus very high returns on invested capital.

From Wallace Weitz’s second quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.
