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.

Guru Investment Theses on Medtronic Inc

Bill Frels Comments on Medtronic Inc - Oct 20, 2014

Healthcare company Medtronic, Inc. (MDT) detracted slightly from performance during the period. Pending a shareholder vote later this year or in 2015, Medtronic is expected to merge with medical device supplier Covidien Plc and change its legal domicile to Ireland. Your Growth Fund portfolio managers are pleased to report that we have completed our valuation for Medtronic. As of October 7, 2014 we believe combined Medtronic/Covidien to be $8 per share more valuable than shares of Medtronic alone.

As of September 30, 2014, the market value of the Growth Fund’s holding in Medtronic was $24 per share greater than its cost basis. We estimate that our typical shareholder, that holds the Growth Fund in a taxable amount, will experience about a $6.00 per share tax liability. We do not offer tax advice; each shareholder should consult a tax advisor about his/her particular circumstance. Providing that there are no significant changes, our current thinking leads us to believe that voting for the merger is in our shareholders’ best interest. We will keep you posted as the voting date is finalized or if we learn of any other developments regarding the merger plans.

Bill Frels Comments on Medtronic Inc - Jul 31, 2014

Healthcare company Medtronic, Inc. (MDT) also contributed to performance, gaining 3.61% and 11.10% for the second quarter and first six months, respectively. Pending a shareholder vote later this year or in 2015, however, Medtronic is expected to merge with medical device supplier Covidien Plc and change its legal domicile to Ireland. Once completed, the merger will create a taxable event for Fund shareholders who will realize a long-term capital gain estimated at $60 million or $1.50 a share.
