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 Janus Capital Group Inc

Ariel Investments' John Rogers Comments on Janus Capital Group Inc. - Feb 25, 2014

Asset manager Janus Capital Group Inc. (JNS) soared +46.37% on better-than-expected earnings and revenue. Specifically, in October the company reported quarterly earnings of $0.18 per share versus consensus of $0.17. Its assets under management (AUM) rose to $166.7 billion, from $158.2 billion a year ago. The company’s cash investments totaled $793 million versus $543 million in debt, giving it a positive $250 million net cash position. Finally, Janus repurchased more than one million shares of its own stock. Clearly, the roaring 2013 stock market had a good deal to do with the positive news that caught Wall Street’s attention. For our part, we were more interested in the capital allocation decisions because those are under management’s control.

From John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio)' Ariel Investments fourth quarter 2013 commentary.

John Rogers Comments on Janus - Nov 05, 2013

Lastly, Janus (JNS)—whose ongoing challenges have tested even our patience—represents the most contrarian name in our entire portfolio as measured by the large number of Wall Street analysts who have a sell rating on the stock. An undesirable trifecta of weak investment results, the negative impact from performance-based fees and net outflows largely isolated to three of its well-known mutual funds have created a perfect storm for this $162 billion asset manager. In our view, the bad news is more than priced in. By our calculation, performance fees have bottomed. Moreover, the company's balance sheet continues to strengthen and outflows should stabilize once returns improve.

Janus Capital Group Inc. (formerly Stilwell Financial, Inc.), a Delaware corporation was incorporated on January 23, 199. The Company and its subsidiaries provide investment management, administration, distribution and related services to individual and institutional investors through mutual funds, separate accounts and subadvised relationships in both domestic and international markets. It provides investment advisory services through its main subsidiaries, Janus Capital Management LLC, INTECH Investment Management LLC and Perkins Investment Management LLC. Each of the Company's three main subsidiaries specializes in specific investment styles and disciplines. The Company's investment products are distributed through three channels: retail intermediary, institutional and international. Each distribution channel focuses on specific investor groups and the unique requirements of each group. Janus offers growth equity, core and international equity funds, as well as balanced, fixed-income, alternative and money market investment products. INTECH has managed institutional portfolios since 1987 and its unique investment process is based on a mathematical theorem that attempts to capitalize on the volatility in stock price movements. Perkins has managed value discipline investment products since 1980. It offers value equity investment products across a range of U.S. asset classes and global equity. The retail intermediary channel serves financial intermediaries and retirement plans for the advice-driven market, which includes asset managers, bank/trust officers, broker-dealers, independent planners, third-party administrators and insurance companies. In addition, this channel serves individual investors who access JCG's investment products directly. The Company has aligned the channel to focus resources on distributor needs and is targeting product platforms that tend to have high asset retention rates to enhance long-term profitability. The international channel serves professional investors outside of the United States, including central and local government pensions, corporate pensions, multi-managers, insurance companies and private banks. International products are offered through Janus Capital Funds Plc, separate accounts and subadvisory relationships. The institutional channel serves corporations, endowments, foundations, Taft-Hartley and public fund clients and focuses on distribution through consulting relationships and on a direct basis. Investors in the institutional channel often rely on advice from third-party consultants. Accordingly, the Company has assembled a Consultant Relations team dedicated to providing information and services to third-party institutional consultants. Although the current asset base in this channel is weighted heavily toward INTECH's risk-managed products, the Company is seeking increased penetration of Janus and Perkins products. JCG encounters competition in all areas of its business. JCG compe
