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.

The Company manufactures automated agricultural irrigation systems and sells these products in both U.S. and international markets. Through the acquisition of Watertronics in January of 2008, the Company has enhanced its position in water pumping station controls with further opportunities for integration with irrigation control systems. The Company is a designer and manufacturer of self-propelled center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems which are used in the agricultural industry to increase or stabilize crop production while conserving water, energy and labor. The Company also manufactures and markets different infrastructure products, including moveable barriers for traffic lane management, crash cushions, preformed reflective pavement tapes and other road safety devices. In addition, its infrastructure segment produces large diameter steel tubing and railroad signaling structures, and provides outsourced manufacturing and production services for other companies. The Company's domestic irrigation sales and production facilities are located in Nebraska and Wisconsin. Its international irrigation sales and production facilities are located in France, Brazil, South Africa and China. It also owns a retail irrigation dealership with three separate retail locations based in the eastern Washington state region.
