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.

There are a number of risks that should be considered before buying its common shares.

Any material inaccuracies in drilling costs, estimates or underlying assumptions will materially affect its business; A substantial or extended decline in both global and local oil and natural gas prices may adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations; Its operations may be adversely affected by political and economic circumstances in the countries in which it operates; It may be subject to risks in connection with acquisitions and the integration of significant acquisitions may be difficult; and its business plan requires substantial additional capital, which it may be unable to raise on acceptable terms in the future, which may in turn limit its ability to develop its exploration, appraisal, development and production activities.
