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.

the financial numbers for year ended 12/31/13 look incomplete. The 8K was filed on 2/13/14 - how long does it take for GuruFocus to update this data?

Hi, just go to 10-Y-Fiancials. There you can see it, And after clicking on the Free Cashflow per Share link it's aven 0.4 now. My question is "Is this small free cash flow good or bad, what conclusions do one have to draw? Thanks! (I didn't check out this company since I sold my shares; that's the reason why I'm only answering now.)
Best regards,
Bert

ReplyBertG - 10 months ago
A Free Cashflow Per Share of 0.7, is it bad? The explanation is too complicated.
