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 Quicksilver Resources Inc

Mason Hawkins Comments on Quicksilver - Aug 13, 2013

The Fund's position in Quicksilver (KWK) declined 19% for the second quarter and 33% for the first six months of the year, making it the largest detractor for both periods. The oil and gas exploration company had positive news that it closed on an agreement to sell 25% of its Barnett Shale assets to Tokyo Gas at a price that is in line with our appraisal. Several challenges, however, weighed on the stock, including failing to refinance all of the company's debt and persistently weak natural gas liquids prices.
