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 NextEra Energy Inc

Bernard Horn Comments on NextEra Energy - Oct 30, 2014

In utilities, absolute positive performance for Guangdong Investment (HKSE:00270) was not enough to compensate for weakness in NextEra Energy and Allete (ALE). NextEra (NEE) reported flat year-on-year growth in adjusted earnings per share for the second quarter. Capital projects for NextEra’s subsidiary, Florida Power & Light, remain on schedule and second quarter earnings per share rose slightly compared to the first quarter.
