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.

Lands' End: A High Quality Business at a Discount
Lands’ End (NASDAQ:LE) is a high quality business as evidenced by its consistent high returns on capital that is selling at a discount to its intrinsic value. It had steadily grown its revenues at a respectable 7.2% a year from 1995 to 2001. Since being acquired by Sears in 2002, the business appears to have stagnated. This is likely due to the company “up-streaming” most of its cash flow to Sears and not reinvesting in its business. In April 2014, Sears completed a spinoff of Lands’ End. Now that the company is being operated independently it is free to reinvest in its business and be run with significantly less distraction from the issues at Sears. I believe this is purchasing a good business at approximately 75% to 80% of a conservative estimate of its enterprise value and approximately 60% of the average enterprise value/EBIT of comparable retailers.
