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 Marathon Petroleum Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Marathon Petroleum Corp - Feb 25, 2014

Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) is one of the largest independent refiners and marketers of crude oil and refined products in the U.S. The shares performed strongly during the fourth quarter as investors anticipated rising profitability due to signals that refining margins were expanding on widening price differentials between domestic and international oil prices. Shares also appeared to benefit from increased visibility into Marathon's pipeline of midstream assets that can be dropped down into its Master Limited Partnership in the future.
