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.

Oil-Dri Corp of America was incorporated in Delaware in 1969. The Company develops, manufactures and markets sorbent products. Its sorbent products are principally produced from clay minerals, primarily consisting of montmorillonite and attapulgite, and, to a lesser extent, other clay-like sorbent materials, such as Antelope shale. Its sorbent technologies include absorbent and adsorbent products. Absorbents, like sponges, draw liquids up into their many pores. Examples of its absorbent clay products are Cat's Pride and Jonny Cat branded premium cat litter, as well as other private label cat litters. The Company also produces Oil-Dri branded floor absorbents, Agsorb and Verge agricultural chemical carriers and ConditionAde and Calibrin enterosorbents used in animal feed. Adsorbent products attract impurities in liquids, such as metals and surfactants, and form low-level chemical bonds. Examples of its adsorbent products are Oil-Dri synthetic sorbents, which are used for industrial cleanup, and Pure-Flo, Perform and Select bleaching clay products, which act as a filtration media for edible oils, fats and tallows. Also, its Ultra-Clear product serves as a purification aid for petroleum-based oils and by-products. Its adsorbent products include Agricultural and Horticultural Products, Animal Health and Nutrition Products, Bleaching Clay and Purification Aid Products, Cat Litter Products, Industrial and Automotive Sorbent Products, and Sports Products. It operates in two segments, namely Retail and Wholesale Products Group and Business to Business Products Group. The Retail and Wholesale Products Group customers include mass merchandisers, wholesale clubs, drugstore chains, pet specialty retail outlets, dollar stores, retail grocery stores, distributors of industrial cleanup and automotive products, environmental service companies and sports field product users. The Business to Business Products Group customers include processors and refiners of edible oils, petroleum-based oils and biodiesel fuel, manufacturers of animal feed and agricultural chemicals and marketers of consumer products. In the Retail and Wholesale Products Group, it has five principal competitors, and in the Business to Business Products Group, it has 16 principal competitors.
