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 Myriad Genetics Inc

Chuck Royce Comments on Myriad Genetics - Oct 08, 2014

Six equity sectors made net contributions to first-half returns, with Health Care out in front, driven in large part by the terrific results for molecular diagnostic company Myriad Genetics (MYGN), which was among the portfolio’s five largest detractors in 2013 when we substantially increased our position. The company specializes in genetic testing for cancer and ended last year facing increased competition, particularly in breast cancer screening tests, and some still unresolved reimbursement issues that remained under federal review at the end of December. It was also facing skepticism from some quarters about the fallout from a June 2013 Supreme Court decision that genes could not be patented. Our take was that neither the high court ruling nor the increased competition would hurt the firm’s long-term health. We see the quality of its predictive tests as the industry’s gold standard, so we were quite pleased to see it continue to execute successfully (and profitably), as well as make a savvy acquisition of Crescendo Bioscience, in the first half. The acquisition diversifies Myriad’s already promising pipeline. It was the Fund’s largest holding at the end of June.

Baron Funds Comments on Myriad Genetics Inc. - Jun 06, 2013

Myriad Genetics, Inc. (MYGN)develops, markets and performs novel genetic tests in its own proprietary labs. It has a lab in Utah and recently opened a second facility in Munich, Germany to process international tests (a big opportunity as nearly all of current revenues are from U.S. customers). MYGN performed about 150,000 tests in 2012 for breast, colon and skin cancers. The company has 193 issued patents, as well as numerous patent applications in the U.S. and foreign countries. It also has numerous trade secrets (including a one-of-a-kind breast cancer genetic mutation database), which are likely even more important than the patents. We believe that MYGN has the ability to grow revenues by expanding its current test menu as well as growing its European operations and introducing new tests (prostate cancer and companion diagnostics for pharmaceutical usage). (Randy Gwirtzman)
