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.

MGIC Investment Corp is a Wisconsin corporation organized in 1984. The Company is a holding company and through wholly-owned subsidiaries it provides private mortgage insurance and ancillary services. The Company sells its insurance products through its own employees.

Its principal product is primary mortgage insurance. Through certain other non-insurance subsidiaries, it also provides various services for the mortgage finance industry, such as contract underwriting and portfolio analysis and retention.
