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.

Its gas and vapor permeation instruments were first used in the food packaging industry, starting in the 1970s, to measure small amounts of moisture which can adversely affect dry cereals and other food packaging. Today its core business, the detection, measurement and analysis of vapors and gases, serves industries far beyond food packaging. The Companys products serve markets such as foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals and consumer products, oil and gas exploration and industrial and environmental safety. It develops, manufactures, markets and services test and measurement, analytical and monitoring instruments and systems used to detect, measure and analyze gases and other chemical compounds, as well as providing related consulting services. The market for these products consists of manufacturers of packaging materials, including manufacturers of papers, plastic films, coatings and containers and the users of such packaging materials, such as companies in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and consumer product industries. Its other customers include manufacturers of flat panel displays, solar panels, electronics, and many other sophisticated materials. The Company has four operating segments which are combined into three reporting segments as follows; Permeation Products and Services, Package Testing Products and Services, and Industrial Analyzer Products and Services and Other. Its permeation products consist of systems and services that measure the rate at which various gases and vapors transmit through a variety of materials. These products perform measurements under precise temperature, pressure and relative humidity conditions. It manufactures and sells three products in this group; headspace analyzers, leak detection equipment and gas mixers. Its headspace analyzer products are used to analyze the amount and type of gas present in the headspace of flexible and rigid packages, as applied to gas flushing in modified or controlled atmosphere packaging. Its manufacture and distribute advanced gas analysis and monitoring instrumentation used in applications such as oil and gas exploration, process gas analysis, industrial hygiene and safety, environmental air monitoring and indoor air quality. Its microbial detection products are designed to rapidly detect microbial growth in food and beverage samples. The Company manufactures and sells three products in this group; headspace analyzers, leak detection equipment and gas mixers. Its trademarks and service marks include the followi
