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: Transportation & Logistics » Shipping & Ports
Compare:AMKAF, NMM, TK, CMHHY, AGMJF » details
International Shipholding Corp was originally founded as Central Gulf Steamship Corporation in 1947. Central Gulf was privately held until 1971 when it merged with Trans Union Corporation ("Trans Union"). In 1978, International Shipholding Corporation was formed to act as a holding company for Central Gulf, LCI, and certain other affiliated companies in connection with the 1979 spin off by Trans Union of its common stock to Trans Union's stockholders. Through its subsidiaries, it operates a diversified fleet of U.S. and International Flag vessels that provide international and domestic maritime transportation services to commercial and governmental customers primarily under medium to long-term time charters or contracts of affreightment. As of December 31, 2013 it owned or operated 50 ocean-going vessels. Its segments include Jones Act, Pure Car Truck Carriers, Dry Bulk Carriers, Rail-Ferry, Specialty Contracts, and Other. Its Rail-Ferry segment faces competition principally from companies who transport cargo over land rather than water including railroads and trucking companies that cross land borders. The Company's operations between the United States and foreign countries are subject to the Shipping Act of 1984, which is administered by the Federal Maritime Commission, and certain provisions of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act, all of which are administered by the U.S. Coast Guard and other federal agencies, and certain other international, federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including international conventions and laws and regulations of the flag nations of our vessels.
