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 Martin Marietta Materials Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Martin Marietta Materials - Jan 22, 2016

Martin Marietta Materials (NYSE:MLM) is a producer of sand, gravel, aggregates and cement (products for the construction industry). During the year, Martin’s aggregates volumes, pricing and incremental margins exceeded investor expectations as non-residential and public construction showed broad-based strength. The outlook for public volumes over the next several years improved with the passing of the 5-year federal highway bill, dubbed Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, and state Department of Transportation budgets expanded. Martin also increased its synergy cost-savings target for the Texas Industries acquisition for the third time from the original $70 million to $120 million and sold their California Oro Grande cement operation for $ 420 million. The proceeds will be used towards their 20 million share repurchase program. A culmination of these positive events pushed Martin Marietta’s stock price above our estimate of intrinsic value, and we exited our position during the third quarter.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Martin Marietta Materials - Oct 27, 2015

Martin Marietta Materials (NYSE:MLM) – Following a reasonably successful seven-and-a-half year holding period, the Fund closed its position as Martin Marietta’s stock price rose above our base case estimate of intrinsic value. We would happily own the business again at a wider discount.

Lountzis Asset Management Comments on Martin Marietta Materials - Mar 21, 2014

MARTIN MARIETTA MATERIALS (NYSE:MLM) is the second largest domestic producer of construction aggregates and a producer of magnesium based chemicals and dolomitic lime. Aggregates refer to the business of selling crushed stone, rocks and sand and is an attractive business. It enjoys significant barriers to entry, including the challenges in gaining permits for new quarries, as well as the low value to weight ratio of aggregates creating local oligopolies that enable solid pricing power. As I mentioned in prior letters, it is one of few businesses I have ever studied that have experienced enormous volume declines yet have been able to continue to raise prices illustrating the power of their business model.



We believe that MLM is well positioned for solid growth in its largest markets, Texas representing 19% of sales and North Carolina 17% of sales, for solid growth. Their top five states of Texas, North Carolina, Iowa, Georgia and South Carolina represent almost 60% of their 2013 sales. Sales in 2013 were $1.9 billion with operating earnings of $155 million translating into fully diluted earnings per share of $2.61 on their 46 million shares outstanding. While MLM’s stock price has appreciated over 25% in 2012 and 6% in 2013, we still believe the company’s assets remain undervalued and the company will continue to generate attractive revenue and profit growth as the undeniable need for infrastructure spending continues to grow.
