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•

Old Republic International is a Chicago based holding company engaged in the single business of insurance underwriting. The Company conducts its operations through a number of regulated insurance company subsidiaries organized into three major segments, namely, General, Mortgage Guaranty and Title Insurance Groups. Old Republic's General Insurance segment is focused on liability insurance coverages. these coverages are provided to businesses, government, and other institutions. In continuance of its commercial lines orientation, Old Republic also focuses on specific sectors of the North American economy, most prominently the transportation (trucking and general aviation), commercial construction, forest products, energy, general manufacturing, and financial services industries. Private mortgage insurance protects mortgage lenders and investors from default related losses on residential mortgage loans made mainly to homebuyers who make down payments of less than 20% of the home's purchase price. There are two main types of private mortgage insurance coverage: 'primary' and 'pool'. Primary mortgage insurance provides mortgage default protection on individual loans and covers a stated percentage of the unpaid loan main, delinquent interest, and certain expenses associated with the default and subsequent foreclosure. Pool insurance, which is written on a group of loans in negotiated transactions, provides coverage that ranges up to 100% of the net loss on each individual loan included in the pool, subject to provisions regarding deductibles, caps on individual exposures, and aggregate stop loss provisions which limit aggregate losses to a specified percentage of the total original balances of all loans in the pool. The title insurance business consists mainly of the issuance of policies to real estate purchasers and investors based upon searches of the public records, which contain information concerning interests in real property. The policy insures against losses arising out of defects, liens and encumbrances affecting the insured title and not excluded or excepted from the coverage of the policy. There are two basic types of title insurance policies: lenders' policies and owners' policies. Both are issued for a onetime premium. Corporate and other operations include the accounts of a small life and health insurance business as well as those of the parent holding company and several minor corporate services subsidiaries that perform investment management, payroll, administrative and minor marketing services. Commercial automobile, workers' compensation and general liability insurance underwritten for business enterprises and public entities is marketed mainly through independent insurance agents and brokers with the assistance of Old Republic's trained sales, underwriting, actuarial, and loss control personnel. The insurance business is highly competitive and Old Republic competes with many stock and mutual insurance companies. The
