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.

Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc., founded in 1972 and incorporated in Utah in 1976. The Company is a natural health and Wellness Company engaged in the manufacturing and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products. It sells its products worldwide to a sales force of independent Distributors and customers who use the products themselves or resell them to other Distributors or customers. The Company has two reportable business segments that operate under the Nature's Sunshine Products brand and are divided based on their geographic operations in the United States and in countries outside the United States. The Company's third reportable business segment operates under the Synergy brand, which offers marketing plans, Distributor compensation plans and product formulations that are sufficiently different from those of NSP United States and NSP International to warrant accounting for these operations as a separate business segment. The Company's line of over 700 products includes herbal products, vitamins, mineral and other nutritional supplements, personal care products and other complementary products such as homeopathic products and sales aids. It purchases herbs and other raw materials in bulk and, after quality control testing, it formulate, encapsulate, tablet or concentrate them, and package them for shipment. Most of its products are manufactured at its facility in Spanish Fork, Utah. Contract manufacturers produce some of its vitamins, mineral and other nutritional supplements, personal care products and certain other miscellaneous products in accordance with its specifications and standards. The Company's independent Distributors market its products to customers through direct-selling techniques, as well as sponsoring other Distributors. Its products sold in the United States are shipped directly from its manufacturing and warehouse facilities located in Spanish Fork, Utah, as well as from its regional warehouses located in Georgia, Ohio and Texas. Most of its international operations maintain warehouse facilities with inventory to supply their customers. The formulation, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, advertising, distribution and sale of each of its major product groups are subject to regulation by one or more governmental agencies. The Company's products are also regulated by the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency.
