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.

Traded in other countries:MX.Canada, MX5.Germany
Methanex Corporation is a Canadian corporation which was incorporated on March 11, 1968. The Company produces and markets methanol, a chemical that is used to make a range of industrial, consumer and energy products. The Company is the supplier of methanol to the international markets of North America, Asia Pacific and Europe and Latin America. The company owns and operates methanol production facilities in Chile, Trinidad and New Zealand and Egypt. It sells methanol through an extensive global marketing and distribution system. The methanol manufacturing process used in its facilities typically involves heating natural gas, mixing it with steam and passing it over a nickel catalyst where the mixture is converted into carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. This reformed gas is then cooled, compressed and passed over a copper-zinc catalyst to produce crude methanol. The Company's production hubs in Chile, Trinidad, Egypt, Canada and New Zealand have a total annual production capacity of approximately 9.5 million tonnes. In addition to the methanol it produces, the company purchases methanol produced by others under methanol purchase contracts and on the spot market. It currently owns a fleet of 18 ocean-going vessels to ship methanol. The Company sells methanol on a worldwide basis to every major market through marketing and distribution system with marketing offices in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.
